Donate an Item
Four Mile Historic Park always encourages the community to help broaden and enrich the quality of exhibits and programs through donations. The generosity of the public provides many of the artifacts used by the organization to create, sustain and continually enhance its many programs. However, due to the volume of offers that occur, we cannot accept unsolicited material dropped off at Four Mile or unsolicited material sent through the mail.
All donation offers are reviewed by the our Collection Committee for retention, either for exhibit in the Four Mile House Museum or for use in our daily programming. Please provide any biographical/background information, historical significance, etc. about the item(s) you wish to donate. Items offered to the museum are accepted only when donated unconditionally as gifts without restrictions, free and clear of all encumbrances. If the committee approves the donation offer, you will be contacted and provided with further instructions.
If at some point during the donation process it is determined that the item(s) does not meet the required criteria for the collection or programming, the item(s) may be declined. Our Collection Policy does not allow for the museum to dispose of or forward material to other organizations.
Please understand that while we wish we could accept any and all offers, we have neither the storage capability nor the staff resources to maintain such an enormous undertaking. While we cannot guarantee that the item(s) will be placed on exhibit, we can promise that it will be preserved and cared for as a valued part of Four Mile Historic Park's collection for future generations.
Thank you for your generosity and support of Four Mile Historic Park.
