Donate to KHS

Due to the generosity of Kenilworth Historical Society supporters throughout the years, we have been able to grow our collection to include thousands of artifacts and photographs, the papers of Kenilworth residents and organizations, books, maps and blueprints, audio recordings and film, and other historical materials. By donating materials to KHS supporters directly contribute to the mission of KHS, to collect and preserve Kenilworth history.

The donations of artifacts, photographs, and papers are essential to fulfilling KHS’ mission. As such, donations must meet the following criteria:

  • The item(s) must relate to Kenilworth history or the prehistory of what is now Kenilworth.
  • Sufficient information must be available about the item(s) function and history.
  • Donors are required to sign a Deed of Gift, which formally signifies the item(s) becomes the actual property of KHS. The Kenilworth Historical Society will not accept materials on deposit or loan.

Please contact KHS before bringing materials to the Historical Society building, since we would like get some idea about what you have and whether it will be possible for us to acquire the materials. If you are interested in donating to the Kenilworth Historical Society please contact our curators at 847.251.2565, or at the following email addresses.
