New Berlin Historical Society


Donations of Artifacts to the New Berlin Historical Society

2D Artifacts: (family histories, photographs, town records, etc.)

The Society welcomes donations of  2D artifacts that pertain to New Berlin history. We are particularly interested in historic photographs of landscapes, farms, buildings, and important events that relate to an earlier era. We prefer the photo be offered as a high resolution, uncompressed image, but any form is welcome. Photo prints may be loaned to us for scanning and immediately returned to the donor.

The donor should be aware that the 2D archives are housed in the museum in normal room conditons that do not meet archival storage standards.

3D Artifacts: (furniture, tools, etc.)

The Society has developed a collection policy that controls acceptance of 3D artifacts. This policy is shown below. The Society curator is in charge of evaluating potential 3D donations. She may be reached here.
