General Donation



Since 1939 the Barnstable Historical Society has taken an important role in documenting the cultural heritage and maritime history of the seven villages of the Town of Barnstable. Our mission is to keep local history alive, approachable and accessible to researchers, students, and the public by maintaining and preserving a growing collection of historically significant artifacts and documents in the Barnstable Historical Society Museum. We are grateful for your consideration and support to be an integral part of this important mission. Local history is inspirational – and will be for future generations.

As a key source of financial support, your donation is urgently needed in supporting museum operations including exhibit enhancement, artifact storage, new acquisitions, artifact repairs, special programs, professional fees, information technology, and more. Barnstable Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation may be tax deductible.
