Keeping & Protecting Our Legacy

Be a History Backer!

For a century, the Antiquarians saved our rich heritage from the auction block, preserved precious artifacts, and contributed to museum initiatives. Antiquarian grants restore important artifacts, supplement collections, and prevent community treasures from leaving the community. Visit some of our extensive collection – all displayed at local museums, schools, and financial institutions – online. Members have the rare opportunity to explore our museum storehouses as they inventory our collections. In addition to working with collections and hosting activities, members actively engage in deepening their understanding of local history through study and book groups.
