At the Library & Museum we can conduct research on Masonic artifacts and literary works or assist you in getting started in your own research endeavors. Many times, the sentimental value outweighs the monetary value of an item. The Library & Museum does not purchase any Masonic-related items nor does it broker the sale of Masonic artifacts. The Library & Museum, its staff or anyone associated with the Library & Museum are not permitted to provide an appraisal service on such items, whether for sale or given as gifts to the Masonic Library and Museum. Antique dealers are best equipped to serve these needs.


If you would like to return and/or donate Masonic-related items such as regalia, swords, jewels, aprons, and other related Masonic items; we can provide you with the contact information for the Masonic-related organization that it originated from. These items will not be purchased by the Library & Museum or any other Masonic-related organization. If you would like to donate the items to the Library & Museum to share rich history associated with the items, we would be happy to provide you with a donation receipt.
