Donating to The Historical Society
of the Somerset Hills

Donating your personal artifacts to the Historical Society

The Historical Society of the Somerset Hills is always interested in adding more materials relating to its museum, library, and archives collections. These donations have helped us to build our collection and fulfill our mission as the custodians and interpreters of our areas history.

While some of the objects and materials in the museum and library's collections belonged to or document well-known people or momentous events in history, much of the collection documents everyday life.

Please note that while we understand that it is sometimes difficult to let a personal artifact go, rest assured that once a donation is received at THSSH, your donation becomes part of history for everyone to share for generations to come. So our apologies that THSSH cannot accept items on loan and they must be bequeathed to the Society.
