Join & Donate
The Museum must raise funds each and every year to restore and maintain its 1832 landmark building; conserve the original collections of furniture, decorative arts, and textiles; and host public education programs for adults and schoolchildren. We need your help.
Tax-deductible cash and stock gifts — large and small — from individuals, foundations, and small businesses really do make a difference. We’d be honored to add you to our list of supporters. Your time and talent are valuable too. Click here for information about volunteering.
