The National Museum of the Morgan Horse holds collections related to all aspects of the breed history. The collections are comprised of manuscript collections, every issue of the Morgan Horse Magazine, an extensive collection of individual Morgan horse photographs, information about prominent Morgan horse farms and breeders, various clubs and breed related organizations, and more. The museum also owns many paintings and sculptures of Morgan horses.
The majority of the collections are housed at Middlebury College Davis Family Library in Special Collections.
Contact the Museum Director if you would like to plan a visit to research at Special Collections.
A list of our book collection can be found in the Middlebury College Library Catalog.
Staff and volunteers are currently working on cataloging, photographing, and digitizing items in the collection. When more items have been completed, they will be available in an online gallery for museum members. Members also receive a number of free research requests per year.
