Pictured above is Theresa Anton with a few of the treasured items from her past that she recently donated to the La Porte City Museum. Do the dreary days of winter have you beginning your spring cleaning early? Or perhaps you have decided it is time to finally get rid of some of your treasures. Whatever the reason, the La Porte City Museum reminds you to THINK OF THEM before you get rid of Grandma’s wedding dress or the odd looking phone that has set on the shelf in the corner of the basement for years.

History comes in all shapes and sizes. If you have an item that you would like to donate please contact the museum at 319-342-3619 or email us at www.lpcmuseum.com. All donations are tax deductible.
