Dear supporters of Knox Museum,
Since 1931, the Knox Museum has stood proud on the hill at the entrance to Thomaston, Maine. Launched by the DAR and a group of dedicated citizens who came together under the name of the Knox Memorial Association (KMA), the Museum was founded through a vision and determination to provide a suitable monument to General Henry Knox and a “fitting place to house his relics.” Against seemingly insurmountable odds, with the KMA’s leadership and the generosity of the citizens of Thomaston, the Knox Memorial Association’s vision became a reality and the “white house on the hill” became a Knox County icon for over 85 years.
This year, the future of the Knox Museum is uncertain due to a critical shortage of funds necessary to meet operating expenses. We hope you will consider making a donation to help us keep our doors open that we might continue to tell the important story of Maine’s most famous Revolutionary War Patriot and First Secretary of War, General Henry Knox.
Your donation supports operating expenses, critical building maintenance, collection care and development, and public education. Donations made before midnight December 31 are deductible on your 2017 tax return.
For more information, please contact Knox Museum Board Chair, Peter Ogden, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 649-5989. Thank you for your support.
