The Museum of Buford operates on a small but efficient budget that is funded in part by the City of Buford, local businesses, and individuals from our community. We are restricted in how fast we can expand the collection because of our financial resources. Many people believe that all the items in the Museum were donated by individuals over the years; but in reality, the majority of the permanent collection was purchased with private funds. We are continually finding items offered for sale that would complement our collection, but we are forced to pass over them because of our lack of funds or pick and choose only a limited number in order to spread our resources further. If we had additional funds, we could buy back more of Buford’s history for the community as a whole to enjoy. The longer we wait on acquiring these materials, the more difficult the task becomes. Help us reach our goal of being able to buy any item we feel is important to preserving our history. Please donate today to help in the acquisition of a rapidly shrinking pool of artifacts from Buford’s rich history. Donate today to help expand access to our collection, nurture dialogue and scholarship, and introduce new generations to all The Museum Of Buford has to offer.
The Museum desperately needs Volunteers to help staff our hours of operation. We also need individuals and/or companies with specific talents to aid us in organizing, sorting, cataloging and conserving the collection, scanning images and text, converting media to digital formats, librarian services, and creating new and engaging displays. If you feel that you could help with these or other aspects of the daily operation of the Museum, please contact Carole Smiley at 770-271-7215.Volunteer Now
