As part of the Museum’s 2021 Heritage Days celebration, the Museum kicking off a collections campaign searching for hidden treasures. We asked the community and those that have items that preserve the people, culture, and history of Chincoteague Island to participate in the ‘Everything Chincoteague Round Up’. When you clean out your closets, attics, garages or storage spaces, reconnect with your roots, glance at that box of old movies, thumb through family photo albums, unearth valuable memories or find that dusty yearbook hiding in a box… Please DO NOT TOSS them.
We would love for you to share these Chincoteague and Assateague treasures with us as they will help us preserve those memories for future generations. We can scan/photograph/copy the items and return them to you or they could be donated or loaned to the Museum collection.
