How Can I Help?

Do you have photos of turn-of-the-century Elmwood?

We would love to have copies made of photos of the Depot, the Mill, the Methodist Church, the businesses, Elmwood High School, etc.

Do you have 1920's - 1940's antiques or memorabilia that we could display at the Aldrich House?

Do you have a little time that you could donate to help with a tour group, to work in the yard, to develop an outside of the Aldrich House Summer tour.

Please call the Executive Director, Kurk Shrader (402-867-4233) to discuss any of these donations or
E-mail the Executive Director
