Donations of Objects and Records for the Collection

Most of the objects, photographs, and records in the

collection of the Chase County Historical Society were received through donations. The collection focuses on objects and records which help to tell the history of Chase County, without duplicating our existing holdings.

We seek photographs, letters, diaries, yearbooks,

advertising, school records, business records, organization records, and items of historical interest. 

We accept objects that were made in or by a Chase Countian, or used in Chase County, that give significant information about Chase County or its people.  They also may have a direct relationship to important events or people in Chase County history, or they may illustrate a significant part of Chase County life. Generally, objects should be in good condition.  

We will be happy to consider any object or record for donation, but we reserve the right to accept donations on a case-by-case basis in accordance with our needs.
