Wake Forest Historical Museum

Due to concerns over COVID-19, the museum has suspended public operations until further notice. Staff will be checking emails and voicemail regularly and responding as quickly as possible to questions and concerns. Please check back for updates. Thank you for understanding.

What to donate?

Giving to the museum can be as simple as donating an interesting old item found on a garage shelf– or in a box from the attic, garden shed, or basement.

Tucked away in the corners of homes, you’ll often find the artifacts we value most… those speical relics of everyday life that help us create the engaging exhibits that speak most authentically about the history of our town.

Old books, business ledgers, and store receipts add realism to displays telling the story of education and business. Tools such as washtubs, skillets, bottles and pottery can piece together the past in new and interesting ways.

The museum is actively seeking these types of artifacts. If you have something you’d like to donate, please contact Executive Director Ed Morris at morrisce@wfu.edu.
