Frequently Asked Questions
How do I create an account to access online research resources?
You do not have to create an account. Click on the resource you want to access; if the file is members-only, a pop-up window will open and ask for the username and password you received by email when you became a member.
My member password for the online research doesn’t seem to work. Can you help?
May I take photos on the 1719 Museum grounds?
Photography is permitted during normal business hours. Please be aware that the 1719 Museum is private property and professional photo shoots need to be scheduled in advance. Please download an accident waiver/liability release and email Museum Assistant to confirm your appointment and schedule a time.
I would like to have a special event at the 1719 Museum. What are my options?
We appreciate your interest in the 1719 Museum as a setting for your special occasion. Depending on your event requirements, it may be possible to schedule your private function at the museum. For more information, please call 717.464.4438.
