Adopt an Artefact
Help protect and preserve the history and heritage of Brome County by “adopting” one of our treasured artefacts!
About the program
The Lac-Brome Museum (LBM) preserves an extensive collection of artefacts and archival materials. Among the thousands of objects in the museum collections are costumes, ceramics, furniture, tools, early electronics, military artefacts, works of art, and much more. The archival collection consists of thousands of photographs, journals, scrapbooks, documents, and books. Together, these irreplaceable objects tell the story of Brome County from its earliest days.
The Adopt an Artefact program enables individuals, schools, organizations, community groups, and businesses to select and sponsor artefacts from the collections for a year. By adopting one of our incredible objects, your tax-deductible contribution helps ensure that the LBM can continue to protect and preserve the heritage and history of Brome County for future generations.
When you adopt an artefact, your contribution entitles you or your gift recipient to the following benefits:
Certificate of adoption
Photograph and description of your artefact, along with a brief history and details of its significance
A plaque displayed next to your artefact acknowledging your contribution, as well as recognition on our website
Adopting an artefact also makes a wonderful and unique gift for a friend or family member!
