Adopt an Artefact 2021

A Visit to the Doctor’s Office

We are proud to announce the launch of the fourth edition of our Adopt an Artefact 2021 fundraising program!

In order to allow us to pursue our goal of preserving and disseminating the rich cultural heritage that tells the story of our region, we are offering the opportunity for everyone to adopt an artefact from the Museum’s collection for a period of one year.

Every person who adopts a ‘Mystery Artefact’ will be able to come seek and admire ” their ” artefact exhibited in the ‘Colbys of Stanstead’ permanent exhibition, starting from September 11, 2021.

The theme for this fourth edition is ‘A Visit to the Doctor’s Office’. All new objects in this edition are ‘Mystery Artefacts’ which relate to this theme, to recreate three medical events: a regular visit to the doctor’s office, a small emergency surgery and a departure for the war of a nurse at the beginning of the 20th century.

This year, our Adopt an ARTEFACT fundraising program is:

  • Over 80 artefacts to adopt or re-adopt;
  • ‘Mystery Artefacts’ ready for adoption;
  • An original theme and …
  • An unveiling event on ZOOM!

To adopt a ‘Mystery Artefact’, call 1-819-876-7322 or contact

We look forward to meeting you at the unveiling event were you will finally discover which ‘Mystery Artefact’ is yours for a year!
