ADOPT AN ARTIFACT
A primary part of The Williamson Museum’s mission is to collect and preserve the history of Williamson County. The Williamson Museum permanent collection currently consists of over 14,000 community-donated archives, photographs, and artifacts. Ideally, each artifact in the collection should be housed in an acid-free box, which costs $15.00-$100, and wrapped in acid-free tissue paper at $20 per 100 sheets.
Your tax-deductible donation to the Adopt an Artifact program will help pay for the care, maintenance, conservation, and storage of the historic artifact collection.
GAULT DOCUMENTARY PROJECT
Please help fund a film about the 18,000-year-old Gault Archaeological Site near Florence. It’s an against-all-odds story of passion and perseverance by Dr. Michael B. Collins and an unlikely crew who revealed this bottomland as one of the most significant prehistoric places in the Americas.
Did you know that your current or former employer might offer a matching gift program? Many companies including Exxon and General Electric will match the contributions of their employees to non-profit organizations. This is a great opportunity for you to make the most of your donation!
The process is simple and requires the Museum to complete a form of eligibility.
BOB PAYNE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Bob Payne volunteered with the Williamson Museum for over ten years, serving as a docent, courthouse tour guide, and living history actor along with his wife Edith. Courthouses were a passion of his, and he and Edith visited all 254 Texas courthouses together. He passed away in 2015 from cancer, but is remembered as a wonderful example of the difference our volunteers make in the community.
Please help us honor Bob Payne by donating to a scholarship in his name. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a Williamson County high school senior planning to major in history.
