All donations to the society are tax deductible.

Financial donations may be made directly by check written to the Hagerstown and Frederick Railway Historical Society, or by check or online contributions to the H&F Railway Fund through the Community Foundation of Frederick County.

Artifact Donations

The Society maintains an archive of photographs, documents and small artifacts in Frederick, Maryland.  We accept donations of these items pertaining to the Hagerstown & Frederick and its predecessor companies for preservation and research purposes.  Please not that the HFRHS does not appraise items and values for tax purposes must be determined by a licensed appraiser prior to donation and at donor cost.

If you or a loved one has a collection of artifacts you would like to protect in the future, we encourage you to bequeath them to the Hagerstown and Frederick Railway Historical Society, Inc.  Any donated items that are not able to be used or preserved by the Society will be transferred to another organization that can make use of those items or used in a manner that will aid in better preserving items retained in the archives.
