St. Louis County Historical Society has announced it's "Adopt An Object Campaign" and is hoping for people to help support the society. Donors will receive certain ‘perks’ based on the donation tier they choose and a reception will be held for donors to view their ‘adopted’ object(s) once preservation/restoration has been completed.

Since its inception in 1922, the St. Louis County Historical Society has collected and preserved the vast history of St. Louis County. Through the preservation of artifacts and archival material, the St. Louis County Historical Society has been able to share the stories that make this region so special.

Five objects have been selected that require specialized restoration and/or preservation equipment.

1.) Ojibwe Birch Bark Canoe
2.) Ojibwe Cradle-board
3.) Hunter and Hounds at Rest (n.d.), Peter Lund
4.) Large Ghost Sailboat Moving Towards Rocks (c. 1891), Peter Lund
5.) Walkure Doll (c. 1905)

In person donations can be made to the Society main office at 506 W. Michigan St., Duluth, MN 55802.If you wish to make a general donation to the campaign, you may do so under a 'general conservation' fund. Updates will be listed on the website and Instagram (@thehistorypeople) along with photos, and object specific information as this campaign continues.
