As we continue with our renovations to the Moore House interior, and while our curator is on maternity leave, we ask the community to put their plans to donate artifact and archival items on hold until February 6, 2024. The Latino Lorain History Project and the Lorain Black History Project will continue to process archival donations and conduct oral histories during this time. We will be happy to accept your donations once again beginning in February when we re-open after winter break.
