How to Donate Your History to the Nevada Historical Society

Currently, we are not accepting new donations.

The Nevada Historical Society collects artifacts, textiles, basketry, paintings, books, photographs, and manuscripts relating to the state of Nevada, the Great Basin region, and the West. Because of limitations, we do not accept objects that do not meet our collection criteria.

If you are interested in offering items to NHS, please contact the appropriate staff member by phone or email and arrange for an appointment. A member of the Nevada Historical Society staff will examine the object(s) to determine whether they should be added to the collections. Once a decision is made, the donor is notified in person, by phone or in writing.
