Donate history and help us build an accessible legacy.

Picnooga, a 501(c)(3) charity organization, is now accepting donations of photographs and other historical artifacts to add to our growing local history archive. Please visit our Legacy page for the types of contributions we’re seeking.

We preserve, protect, and share a digital collection of historical photographs, paper ephemera, 3D objects, and film that surface due to our persistent search efforts. Chattanooga is the largest mid-sized city in the United States without a history center or museum, so we’ve made our collection open and free to view through our social channels and, most recently, this website. Soon, physical source material can be accessed by appointment only to educators, students, and community projects.

Make or schedule a donation online and help us collect, preserve, and share Chattanooga’s history throughout the year.
