Kewaunee County Historical Society using donations to expand collection

The Kewaunee County Historical Society has been relying less on physical volunteers in favor of frequent donations of artifacts and other pieces of history to build the society’s collection. Although there are volunteers who help during the summer months, Richard Dorner, director of the History Center at the society, said there aren’t that many that help out at either the center or the museum. Instead, he said most choose to help through financial contributions.



Some of the more popular exhibits Dorner pointed out as being donated to the facility by volunteers include several military uniforms and autographed pictures from every past United States President from Franklin Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan. The Kewaunee County Historical Society is taking January off but will return with several events planned for 2019.
