Donate Items to the Society’s Collections
The Ocean County Historical Society accepts donations of items pertaining to Ocean County before 1950. The Society restricts the scope of its collections to objects having local significance. If you would like to donate an historical item, please call 732-341-1880 to make an appointment with one of our acquisition staff volunteers.
The Society’s collections determine the contents of our temporary exhibits and what furnishings are displayed permanently in the rooms of the Elizabeth Sculthorp House. The collections include thousands of artifacts including personal items, textiles, clothing, furniture, decorative arts, fine arts, tools and equipment, as well as archaeological, cultural, and natural history remnants. The Board of Trustees ensures that all items have a demonstrable connection with Ocean County.
