The museum is filled with donated items. Including some very valuable things like guns, knives, flags. If I were to donate something of value to any museum, it would be on the condition that it remain on site and in their sole possession for at least twenty five years. So that you don’t make a donation that the recipient turns into cash, at your expense. Many small museums have gone under, selling their collections haphazardly. I’d want to protect myself. But yes, this museum is a very good and logical place to donate a period fusil. you’re a good man for even considering this.Thank You !!
I'm 72 now and retired. In about 2-3 years I need to start "thinning my herd" as they say. LOL I have an original Northwest Trade Fusil that was likely purchased in St. Louis, MO during the period. And I'm thinking the Museum is where it should go (belong). What do you guys think ?
