Acquisition Fund

to help the Fall River Historical Society

Acquisition Fund

It is by continually adding new acquisitions to its collections that the FRHS ensures that it will remain relevant and interesting to a diverse audience for many years to come.

Gifts to the Acquisition Fund provide the means for the FRHS to expand our holdings in various categories through the purchase of historically significant material that will broaden the scope of our collections. Categories include:

  • Americana
  • Costumes and Accessories
  • Decorative Arts
  • Ephemera
  • Fall River Textile Industry
  • Furniture
  • Local History
  • Manuscripts
  • Maritime
  • Paintings, Drawings, and Sculpture—19th century
  • Paintings, Drawings, and Sculpture—20th century and Contemporary
  • Photographs

Contributions to this fund enable the FRHS to take advantage of opportunities in the art, antiques, and collectibles market when a Fall River treasure or relevant object is offered for sale, or turns up at auction.

Your gift (follow this link) makes it possible to secure these objects for the benefit of the public in perpetuity.

All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law.
