Donate items

Many of our documents and artifacts have been donated to North Yarmouth Historical Society, and we are deeply grateful to our donors.

If you own items that you think might be appropriate for our collections we would love to hear from you.

Please note that all items must support our mission of collecting material that is related to the history and culture of North Yarmouth, and not duplicate other items already in our collections. We are looking for items that are associated with individuals, buildings, businesses, and other organizations with North Yarmouth connections. We might also be interested in items that could be used in exhibits—farm related items, period books or objects.

We will take “temporary custody” of your donation and a final Gift Form will be signed by both you and NYHS, whereby you will transfer full title to North Yarmouth Historical Society.

The IRS considers it to be a conflict of interest for collecting institutions to supply monetary appraisals for items donated to their collections, so it is the donor’s responsibility to obtain such an appraisal if you so desire. We can supply a list of appraisers to contact, if you need such services. We supply this list as a service, and it should not be construed as an endorsement of any person or business.
