York County Heritage Trust Artifact Collection
The Trust's artifact collection encompasses more than 90,000 artifacts showcasing nearly 300 years of York history.  Objects in the collection of the York County Heritage Trust document the development, culture, and contributions of the York County community, both on local and national scales.  Be sure to visit exhibits at our five museum sites to see just some of our extensive collection.   
 
Donation of Objects 
February 2014
As the Trust evaluates the status of over 90,000 artifacts in our museum collection, we are temporarily putting a hold on new acquisitions of objects.  Please note that the Library & Archives will continue to accept print-media donations. With a collection of our size and scope, the Trust gives utmost consideration to proper storage, care and documentation of artifacts.  Recent staffing changes in Interpretation and Collections have also necessitated that time be devoted to the assessment of artifact duplications and to storage space analysis.
