Donate an Item

Have something up in the attic that you've held on to for all these years? Maybe it's an old photograph of you and your family at the Chesapeake Beach amusement park, or a picture of your brother learning how to crack his first crab.

We could give that special aging treasure a good home at the Bayside History Museum. We would love to take care of your old memorabilia. You can even have visitation rights! So get on up in the attic and see what you can find!

Photos, souvenirs, advertising items and ephemera from Bayside area businesses and other items of historical significance in Bayside area history are especially appreciated as items for donation. We are especially interested in old photographs that show the area as it was in years gone by. You don't even need to give them to us permanently. We make a copy of your photograph and return the original to you with our thanks for sharing!

We value each personís kindness and consideration in thinking about donating an item to the Bayside History Museum. We have a collections committee that evaluates requests from individuals to donate items.

Please send an e-mail to with a brief description and photo of item or call Grace Mary Brady at 410-610-5970.

Help us to preserve and share the history and heritage of the Bayside community by donating items that reflect that history and heritage. Help us improve our displays and enable us to better illustrate life as it was here in the past.
