Donate Your Treasures

Esperance Bay Historical Society (EBHS) collects documents of all kinds, photographs and ephemera – items that tells the story of Esperance, and its people. Most of our collections come from people who value EBHS as a trustworthy repository for their historical treasures. By donating a little piece of history, they have helped to make the Esperance story richer and more complete for generations to come.


The (EBHS) endeavours to support the Esperance museum; donations received from the public provide this opportunity, to support the museum and develop museum exhibitions.

The “New Era in Agriculture” exhibition completed this year (2018) and the “A D Helms” story, part of the new era in agriculture, was greatly assisted and made possible through donations. Discover more about the exhibition.
