By becoming a member of the Society for Commercial Archeology, you are joining a cause: to discover, document, protect and celebrate our nation’s unique 20th century roadside heritage!

Join us and you will become part of community of professionals and enthusiasts — an eclectic mix of architects, planners, educators, historians, photographers, writers, collectors, artists, roadside business owners, and others — who share your passion for a time when the American road trip was an adventurous journey of discovery. And you’ll meet many new friends along the way.

Membership benefits include:

  • Two issues of the 40-page SCA Journal, the preeminent scholarly publication for 20th century roadside topics. The publication features in-depth articles and provides reviews of noteworthy roadside-related books.
  • Four issues of the SCA News, an eight-page publication that provides shorter articles on roadside-related topics.
  • Invitations to SCA Conferences, tours, and events, which typically include special publications. SCA conferences offer fun, informative presentations and legendary tours in which busloads of members explore the American roadside together.
