As we plan for the future, prudent development of our artifact collection is especially important. Decisions are based on your object’s history and significance to the history of the Manitowoc County region, and its relationship to artifacts already in our collection.

The Manitowoc County Historical Society accepts donations of original materials documenting the history of our community. Examples of the types of materials preserved in the Archives include letters, photographs, diaries, unpublished memoirs and manuscripts, all forms of two dimensional artwork, original tape recordings, original film and video footage and architectural drawings.

The following form MUST be filled out for your donation to be considered. When you press submit, it will automatically be sent to the Manitowoc County Historical Society staff for review. Please allow for a minimum of two weeks for review by the Artifacts Committee.
