The Southwest Harbor Historical Society welcomes gifts of materials relevant to the history of our area of Mount Desert Island. All items that are offered are considered by the Acquisitions Committee and/or the Society Board of Directors before acceptance, as space and ability to care for certain types of material may not be available.
We are interested in paper items (such as diaries; letters; scrapbooks; reports by individuals, businesses, or groups; genealogical papers; etc.), electronic and visual media (photographs, videos and tapes, computer files and printouts, etc.), and objects (tools, home and business artifacts, toys, etc.).
We are a 501(c)3 organization, giving the donor the advantage of listing gifts as an itemized deduction on ones income tax forms, but any valuation or appraisal is the responsibility of the donor, not the Society.
You may contact us at P.O. Box 272, Southwest Harbor ME 04679 or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
