Does the historian's office accept donation of historical items?

Yes! The County Historian's Office primarily relies on donations of historical materials to expand the collection. Donations are assessed on a case-by-case basis, considering such factors as intrinsic historical value, condition, age, rarity, and storage requirements. Contact us and we will be happy to discuss.

Monetary donations are not accepted as this office is a department of county government.
