History: an account of things said and done in the past. Each of us has a history—an account of where we came from and how we got to be who we are. In addition, each community has a history of how it became what it is today.
Will you consider a gift to the Friends of Deepwood and Make History Happen campaign? Historic Deepwood Estate is managed by The Friends of Deepwood, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
Donations can be sent by mail, charged by phone or completed online using Paypal. Questions or prefer to speak to a person? Call us at (503) 363-1825 Ext. 304.
Deepwood is launching a year-end giving campaign to help fund our plans for expanding educational programming during 2015. Staff is busy developing an exciting series of K-12 hands-on programs teaching Salem youth about history, natural science, art, and culture.
Some programs will be held in the historic house, while others will utilize the gardens and nature trails to explore the world of plants, insects, birds, and ecology.
Your donation will help fund the educators and materials to bring new programs, such as Young Sherlock Holmes Forensic Science, Hands-On History, Nature EDventures, and Art and Culture to Deepwood.
Interested in donating your special treasures to be preserved at Deepwood? We would love to set up an appointment to discuss donations to the museum and see if we can make a home for your treasurers within our collection.
Due to the nature as a home occupied for the vast majority of its existence, we have a wide span within our collection. We accept items from mid-1800s through the 1960s. We focus on home life, wedding history, Victorian culture, and more.
Please contact our Museum Manager, Sarah Pearson to set up an appointment, or if you have questions regarding estate planning or donations.
