Additions to the collections of the John Wornall House Museum and the Alexander Majors House Museums need to match one or more of the following:

  1. The artifact is from the period of interpretation—1850-1880;
  2. The artifact can provide meaningful historic context when on display;
  3. The artifact does not duplicate items already in the collections.

If you have an artifact that was owned by the Wornall, Majors, Waddell, Russell, or Poteet families before 1880, please contact us. Pieces owned by these historical figures would a treasure.
