Adopt an Artefact Fundraising Program 2018-2019

The Stanstead Historical Society (SHS) is the custodian of an extensive collection of artefacts and archives representing the history and heritage of the border communities of Stanstead County, from the early 19th and 20th centuries. This incredible collection, which bears witness to the rich cultural heritage of Stanstead County, telling the stories of our region and community, is yours to discover!

The Adopt an Artefact fundraising program has been conceived as a way for local residents, schools, businesses and organizations of the MRC de Memphrémagog to adopt an artefact from our collection. Each artefact to adopt from our catalogue will be on display within the museum for one full year. By adopting one of our artefacts, you will be contributing in a meaningful way to the preservation and promotion of our collections.
