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.

Flying the Demon Deacon flag as we host visitors from the WFU Alumni Council. Welcome to #oldcampus! Happy Easter from the Wake Forest Historical Museum. (Old Well photographed from the Brewer-Harris Garden) These are the brothers of Kappa Sigma fraternity. They went to school here on the Old Campus and reunite each year at the Trek. They are an amazing group and we appreciate all they do for the Wake Forest Historical Museum! #kappasigma #wfu "His most unusual talent was combining profanity in unexpected ways," author Tucker Mitchell says to our Trek to the Old Campus crowd, about the subject of his excellent biography, legendary WFC football coach Peahead Walker. #wfu #oldcampus
