DONATE OR LOAN AN ARTIFACT

The BIC is pleased to accept your authentic artifact or old photo from the Barrier Islands as a gift or loan to the museum. While we are unable to accept or display every item due to limited space, we constantly update our exhibits and would love to learn more about any artifact you might have - as well as the stories behind them. Please contact Museum Director Monika Bridgforth to discuss your gift or loan.

SHARE YOUR STORY

Do you have an interesting first-hand story about life on the Barrier Islands? We'd love to hear it! Do you know someone who loves to tell tales about those good ole days out on the islands? Convince them to share! 

Please contact the BIC, and consider allowing us to record an oral history. This is such an important part of our mission to preserve - and perpetuate - the unique traditions and history of this coastal lifestyle. We want to make sure that generations of children and grandchildren can continue to learn about their past. 

The oral history recording studio is also available to those who would like to preserve their personal story for family and friends.
