Keep History Alive with a Year-End Donation!

The Year-End Appeal supports our historical work year-round. Your gift will make a big difference!

Your 2021 Gift makes it all possible, including:

Educational Programs: Though the pandemic has limited our tour sizes and caused us to reimagine some of our programming, we resumed in-person fieldtrips in te Fall of 2021. We are continually developing new in-person and virtual educational options.

Preserving the Oldest House in Wake County: upgrades to the museum’s aging HVAC systems, repairs to chimneys and siding, and preventative maintenance to avoid future damage

Museum Collection: new acquisitions and professional conservation of precious artifacts

Garden: plants and signage; care and upkeep

Tour Guides’ and Volunteers’ Costumes: the hand-sewn, period-correct petticoats, breeches, caps, and waistcoats that clothe our historical volunteers

On-Going Expenses: the utilities, supplies, salaries, maintenance, etc. that keep us running day-to-day

During this pandemic, your support is more essential than ever. Thank you.
