Corporate and individual donors have contributed significantly to the wide variety of shoe shop artifacts currently in Museum L-A's collection. The majority of the items in the collection represent the last 50 years of the industry through machinery, tools, shoe lasts, products, company promotional and operational materials, and different items involved in manufacturing.
More rare are those materials dating to before 1950. Museum L-A is interested in collecting artifacts from a variety of times, 1850s to present, and from the many shoe shops in Lewiston and Auburn.
Museum L-A accepts donations from the local shoe industry that fit with the mission of the museum. If you are interested in making a donation of an artifact, or helping the museum to acquire a rare item to enhance the collection, we encourage you to contact us at 207-333-3881 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
