We have a growing number of collections, including archives, records of defunct civic organizations, photos, newspaper clippings, clothing, general store memorabilia, and more! Collection management and care is a very important issue with us, ensuring that all items donated to the White River Valley Historical Society will be maintained for generations to come.

Did you know that even when clean, our fingers can damage vintage items? That’s right, the oils in our fingers can spread to any surface, damaging papers and fabrics. Here at WRVHS, anyone handling a collection item is required to wear gloves at all times—one small way to keep our collections in the best condition possible!
