Giving to the Museum

    The 2018 Annual Dinner was a great success. The event is our museum’s most significant fundraising effort. Monies raised help us to preserve and tell our history to residents as well as visitors who come from across the country to experience The History Museum. They tour the Oliver Mansion, which was home to J.D. Oliver and his family, and enjoy the Historic Oliver Gardens, the setting for tonight’s event. One of the finest regional history museum complexes in the country, The History Museum comprises a variety of changing and permanent exhibit galleries, the Ernestine M. Raclin Gallery of Notre Dame History, Kidsfirst Children’s Museum, and the Worker’s Home, in addition to the Oliver Mansion. We are grateful to all who are helping to make the 2018 Annual Dinner successful.

    The History Museum is celebrating 150 years of service to the community. The excellence in programs and exhibits that you’ve come to expect requires significant resources. Our role as the “Keepers of History” means that we collect and preserve objects and archival documents to ensure that they will be around for the future. We also exhibit and interpret these items to help educate our present generation. Help us to continue our mission, to develop new programs, and to reach new audiences. Contributions can be made to support general operations, to assist with special projects and to grow our endowment—all critical components of sustaining our place as the purveyors of history for this community. For information about supporting The History Museum, please contact Randy Ray at 574-235-9664, ext. 227 or at . Thank you.
