The EHS Archives contain slightly over 1,100 accessioned items. The collection actually includes several hundred more individual pieces because some similar things are packaged and referenced under one accession number – examples include a group of nails, a set of handkerchiefs, and the more than 90 doilies in the collection. The EHS archives consist of a wide range of objects, including books, papers, paintings, photos, household objects, furniture, tools, linens and clothing. Many of the items relate to the Wood family. All together there are currently over 50 boxes of artifacts.
