Toledo's Attic, a program of the Lucas County-Maumee Valley Historical Society, rests on the belief that historical knowledge of one's own city enriches a sense of personal and cultural identity, engenders civic spirit and responsibility, and contributes to a well-lived life. Thus its mission is to identify and publicly display artifacts and other evidence that help to reconstruct, interpret, and commemorate the story of twentieth-century Toledo and its surrounding communities.
- Develop intergenerational interest, appreciation, and respect for our unique heritage.
- Facilitate the ongoing identification, acquisition, preservation, and exhibition of archives, artifacts, oral histories, and sites.
- Invite and build community support for participation and contributions to the program.
- Pursue our mission through collaboration with The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, The University of Toledo, The Toledo Museum of Art, and other appropriate entities. Reviewed and approved by the LC-MVHS Executive Committee 7-20-98.
