Donate to the Collection

Thank you for thinking of the Rice County Historical Society. Our rich collection of Rice County history began back in 1926 with people like yourself who wanted to share their treasure with future generations.

Please note, all items accepted by the Rice County Historical Society must meet the following criteria:

  1. It must have some connection to Rice County, Minnesota. Either made-in, used-in, or found-in the county.
  2. It should be in good condition.
  3. The Donor must have free and clear ownership of the item.
  4. It should be something for which RCHS has the ability to care for. (Not overly fragile or large.)

If you are interested in donating an item to our collection, we encourage you to first call the museum at 507-332-2121 and talk with a staff member. If it is small and you like to mail it to us, please print out the Declaration of Gift Form, sign the form, and mail it and the object(s) to the museum at 1814 NW 2nd Ave., Faribault, MN 55021.
