Join the Laws family and support our historical efforts.


Laws Railroad Museum and Historical Site offers opportunities for private individuals and businesses to enhance the museum grounds through our "Adopt-A-Tree" program. The grounds at Laws have always been a wonderful resource for our community. In these unprecedented times our grounds play an even more important role in helping people’s mental health and wellbeing.


Now you can adopt a vintage building at Laws Museum and Historical Site.  In our Adopt-A-Building program, donations are placed in a restricted account, and used solely for maintaining and enhancing the building of your choice.  Your support helps insure they are preserved for future generations.  As a 501(c)3 nonprofit public benefit organization, your donation is tax deductible

Building sponsorships are offered in four levels:

One-Time Donations

Get On Board - Volunteer

We host many community events and activities. Without the devotion of our volunteers, many of these would be de-railed. Volunteers are a gift to the community. You can make a difference. We understand that life commitments don’t provide the freedom to volunteer on a regular basis. However, if your days are somewhat flexible and you are able to give us a little time, we would love to have you.
