Donating Collections to GHS
You can play a role in preserving Georgia history.
The Georgia Historical Society has been collecting books, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, photographs, architectural drawings, and artifacts about the state of Georgia since 1839. Much of GHS's collections are the result of donations from individuals, families, and organizations that recognize GHS as a secure and trustworthy repository for housing and caring for the story of Georgia.
