Our collection consists of objects ranging in size from tiny uniform buttons to our historic building itself. Our donors understand Soldiers & Sailors Memorial as a museum that represents those who served from the Civil War through present day, as such we will be a resource to researchers and educators for generations to come. Our artifacts and documents are enormously important in helping to bring history to life. Due to the generous donations of veterans, their families, friends and other donors, the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial & Museum has acquired a collection that is representative of American military service, but the Museum must be somewhat selective with artifacts it accepts. Our archives, though, are ever growing, and we are particularly seeking additions to our archive of personal stories and wartime letters, diaries and photographs. We ask that you please read the donation pages, and then contact us concerning any material that you wish to donate to the Museum.
Our collection began in 1910 initially with artifacts given by local donors. We continue to grow our collection and actively seek objects that represent all branches and eras of United States military history. If you have military items to donate or questions regarding a donation please contact;
