Donate to the Collections

Do you own a piece of history?


Historical objects are powerful connectors to the past. As educational tools from which we can learn about individuals and eras, these artifacts are a valuable historical resource for changing exhibits, research, education programs, and to preserve and illustrate the story of the region and its families.

The Lebanon History Museum opened in October 2000. Objects donated to the collection form a valuable historical resource for changing exhibitions, for research purposes, education programs, and to preserve and illustrate the story of our City and its families.

Lebanon History Museum

The Lebanon History Museum collects three-dimensional items that represent our city to illustrate everyday life and a diverse range of people and eras, from the early people of Sellars Farm, the establishment of our town in 1802 to the twentieth century. Decorative arts--paintings, furniture, pottery, textiles--also form an important part of our collection.
