Join the Society for Commercial Archeology (SCA)! Help us expand public awareness of our nation’s unique, 20th century roadside heritage. Help support SCA’s documentation, preservation and celebration of the drive-ins, motels, amusement parks, theaters, tourist attractions and other businesses along the roadside that represent the best of American design and ingenuity.
By becoming an SCA member, you’ll be helping to protect our nation’s rich roadside heritage. You will join a community of preservation professionals and amateur roadside enthusiasts alike—an eclectic mix of architects, planners, educators, historians, photographers, writers, collectors, artists, roadside business owners, and others. You’ll make new friends who share your passion for a time when the American road trip was an adventurous journey of discovery.
And you’ll enjoy membership benefits that 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. </li
