Monetary Donations

The Taneytown History Museum is a 501(c)3 organization, making your donations tax deductible. If donating via check, please make your check out to the Taneytown Heritage and Museum Association, Inc. (T.H.M.A.).

Artifact Donations

Nearly all the artifacts on display in Museum exhibits are on loan. Limited storage space and budget restraints make permanent collections very difficult. The Museum does have a reference library and strives to collect and preserve paper memorabilia and ephemera pertaining to Taneytown and the surrounding area. These items are cataloged and are available for research. If you have artifacts or ephemera you would like to loan or donate, please see Contact Us, and the Museum Exhibits and Accessions Committee will contact you.


Taneytown Heritage and Museum Association has no paid employees and operates as a volunteer non-profit community organization.  History Museum volunteers devote many hours to research, planning, executing and setting up exhibits. Volunteers care for the Association’s property at 340 East Baltimore Street providing grounds maintenance, housekeeping and building upkeep. Behind the scenes work includes fund-raising, publicity, event planning and administrative chores. Community members serve as docents for events and as Museum Guides. Volunteers are always welcomed to serve in any of these areas. If interested in being a volunteer please call Pam Reed at 410-984-2427 or  contact a member of the Board of Directors by telephone or email to inquire about Volunteering!
