Friends of MESDA

 

 

MESDA’s unparalleled collections span seven states and four centuries. Members provide essential support for the acquisition, conservation, research, and exhibition of important artifacts made and used in the early South. The Friends of MESDA program is structured to uniquely benefit the museum and those who are passionate about MESDA’s collection and its mission.
