I have an item I would like to donate. What should I do?
Thank you for thinking of us! We do accept some donated items from the community, however, because we are limited in both storage and resources, we cannot accept every item. We want to properly care for all the items given to the museum, but we may have to deny a donation if we feel that we are not properly suited to care for the item. We can only accept items that are approved by the Museum Manager and fit within our Collections Policy. This means items to be donated must be from Cleveland County originally, and from the 1850-1920 time frame. If you are unsure if your item fits our policy, please email photos and background information to email@example.com. Please do not drop off items unattended or mail to us, unless otherwise discussed.

can you tell me a little background on the house?
The Moore-Lindsay House is a Queen Anne Victorian style home that was originally built in 1899. The house became a museum in the 1970s.
