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.

From the April 1961 Wake Forest phone book... instructions on how to use a dial telephone, how to dial a number, how to interpret ringing and busy signals, and what to do on a party line. Anyone else remember those days? This amazing photo from Sanford Bailey shows just HALF of the folks at the 1954 Powell Family Reunion!!! Brought out the programs to get moving on the 2017 WF Community Christmas Dinner... it's never too early to start!!!🎄 An early morning visitor to the museum garden.
