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.
How to Make a Donation
Donations to be considered for addition to the permanent collections must have a pertinent Lorain story to tell, or Lorain connections such that they will be used, if not for display in our exhibits, for research and/or teaching purposes.
