The Missisquoi Museum’s collection numbers over 30,000 items. Unique to the collection are objects and documents belonging to the United Empire Loyalists and their descendants; information and objects from the Fenian Raids of 1866 and 1870; photographs, ledgers, diaries and letters from the surrounding communities; early 20th century agricultural machinery and tools housed in the Walbridge Barn site; and merchandise from the 1940s housed in Hodge’s general store.
Donation of objects
Would you like to make a donation? Please e-mail photographs of the item(s) along with a description and other information about each object; name of the original owner and a brief history of the object if possible. If you live locally, bring your item(s) directly to the Missisquoi Museum during regular business hours.
Please note: As the availability of space in our storage areas is extremely limited, objects will only be accepted if they are unique to the collection and have a strong connection to the history of Missisquoi County. Items must also be in good condition.
All of the Missisquoi Museum’s acquisitions are by donation only.
