Our Collection

The Vigo County Historical Society Museum is an active steward of a large collection which it holds in the public trust. All donations must conform to our stated mission, our Scope of Collections, and have either research or exhibition potential at the museum. In addition, the long-term curation of the individual objects and archives in our collection require consideration of physical space, man hours and financial resources. To meet all of those requirements we must carefully consider the appropriateness of each and every object or archival material that is being offered for acquisition through donation.
