Bring the Past to Life – 2019 SAM Annual Appeal

Dear Friends,

What if I told you our most important work at the Saint Albans Museum was not only about the past?

SAM is active in our community at this moment – offering exhibitions, educational programs, arts/music performances, research opportunities, and family-friendly activities throughout the year. Both within our historic building and beyond its walls, we strive to ‘bring the past to life’ for area students, residents, and visitors of all ages and interests. Many programs are free, and all are open to the public. We believe that an understanding of the people, places, and ideas that define our common heritage is vital for navigating the present, as well as planning for the future. We strive to be a Museum…and more – and you can help SAM achieve that vision.

Each year our exhibit updates, innovative educational programming, and care for our collections and facility is only possible because of your investment in our mission. 

During this season of giving, we hope you will join SAM as we continue to serve our community. Your end-of-year contribution is critical to sustaining our efforts. You can make a tax-deductible gift by mail (PO Box 722, St. Albans VT 05478) or securely online anytime via our website, We are grateful for the positive impact you can help make around our local history – now, and for generations to come.
