Donate Artifacts and Documents

Thank you for your interest in donating objects or documents to the Livingston County Museum. Every year, new artifacts and documents are added to the collection through the generosity of individuals and corporations. These donations help the Museum to be Livingston County’s premier institution for interpreting local history.

How to Donate Artifacts and Documents

If you have artifacts or documents that you believe would add to the Livingston County Museum collection you will first be asked to fill out a lead donation form describing your proposed donation. Please try to include a photograph and measurements of the object/document as well as the history of the item with your form. Please fill out a lead form and mail it to the address below or call 585-243-9147 for more information.

Once the form is received, your proposed donation will be reviewed by our collections committee based on its relevance to Livingston County and the Livingston County Historical Society’s mission and vision. You will be contacted regarding the next steps and may also be asked for additional information about your donation. Upon review, the collections committee may ask for a loan of your item before approval of the donation. The Livingston County Historical Society does not accept donations at the door.
