Wish List

Here at the museum, we love to tell the stories of Pocahontas County. We do programs for school students and local clubs. We update exhibits at the museum to keep visitors coming back. We display parts of our collection in three of the county libraries. We use many of the artifacts at the museum to help tell these stories, but we've noticed some gaps in our collection.

Would you like to help out by donating any of the following items to the museum?

  • wood rake

  • wood egg crate

  • small chicken equipment

  • razor strop

  • railroad items

  • small items from the 1950's (poodle skirt, saddle shoes, household items, etc)

  • any small items pertaining to the immigrant experience

  • kitchen cupboard

  • ice chest

  • cradle

  • Photos of Pocahontas County (These can be scanned and returned.)

  • any item from Pocahontas County that has a good story


Remember, although we have big ideas, we are a small museum. The items can't be too big. If you have something that you would like to donate, please call Connie at 841-2222 or Dorothy at 845-4496. Thanks!
