[ARCHIVED] 6th Annual Adopt An Artifact

This fall marks the High Point Historical Society's sixth annual Adopt-an-Artifact campaign to raise conservation funds for an irreplaceable High Point artifact.  Thanks to the support of the community, we have raised over $10,000 and conserved 21 artifacts in the last five years! 

In the next year, we plan to add a new section, showing the community and businesses of Washington Street, to our permanent exhibit. An important part of that display will be items from the now-demolished First Baptist Church. Last year, we raised money to conserve an altar chair and plant stand from the church. This year, we plan to preserve a stained glass window that we would like to include in the display.  The glass itself is in good condition, but the wooden frame is badly deteriorated and breaking apart. The cost to conserve the window will be $500 to $1.000.  Any additional funds raised will go toward safely mounting one or two larger and heavier windows to a wall in the permanent exhibit.

Your tax-deductible donation to our Adopt-an-Artifact fund will help ensure that these artifacts will be saved for our community to enjoy.
