Make A Donation

The Bolduc House Museum is owned and operated by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Missouri, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization. We depend on the generous participation of individuals and organizations for our continued support.

Choose which cause you would like your gift to support. When you click on the Donate button, you will be connected to PayPal where you can specify the amount of your gift and assure that it is deposited in our Paypal Account. Within two business days of receiving your gift, we will email you a donation receipt. Please retain that receipt as proof of your gift which may qualify for a tax deduction.

My gift is for:

  • General Operating Support – Funds given towards general operating support will be used for utilities, salaries, repairs, and the assorted costs of running the Bolduc House Museum. 

 

  • Replacing the Roof of the Louis Bolduc House – This National Historic Landmark won its designation because of its unique French colonial architecture including the Norman Truss System and hand-hewn hipped cedar shake roof. The roof was replaced in 1958 and in 1987.  Once the funds are raised, a new roof will be installed using historically appropriate materials and will cost between $75,000-100,000 including materials, labor, and professional consultants in historic architecture and preservation.

 

  • Expand the Rozier Library & Heritage Room – This is our archives, a significant collection of rare French books, early American books, and original documents and research tools for local history and genealogy. Your gift will be used to purchase microfilm, books, supplies, furnishings and/or to fund the renovations to turn a room upstairs at the Linden House into an efficient comfortable place for researchers to work. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this project.

 

  • Assist in the Transition to Living History Interpretation – Your gift for this cause will be used to provide period clothing for our interpreters and reproduction 18th century artifacts such as garden tools, cooking utensils, and craft supplies to engage our visitors hands-on in the French colonial experience here. We hope to raise $3,000 for this project this year.

 

  • Conserve an early 19th century portrait of Jean-Baptiste Sebastian Pratte which has been incorrectly framed behind glass for many years and is in need of restoration, repair, cleaning, and proper conservation. The total cost of this project is $3,000.
