Donations are Appreciated
Monetary donations help us fund our many activities: Museum collections care; Mineral Springs Park development; Adams House Building maintenance and projects; Education initiatives; and day-to-day annual budget expenses. Donors also have the option to give to our endowment, the Heritage Fund. Donations of goods and services are also appreciated. Donations to the Middletown Springs Historical Society, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, are tax deductible.
The Collections Management Committee meets regularly to consider items offered for the permanent collection. The Museum collects items that document the artistic, agricultural, industrial, religious, commercial, and political history, and the traditions and material culture of Middletown Springs. The Committee also considers the space it has available to safely store items, the amount of care they require, and the possibility of duplication. Donors are asked to first review our Collections Management Policy , and then to contact Collections Manager via the button below.
