I have kind of a random question, but don't know who to ask... so I figured the Historical Society would be a good start. I won't go into all the gory details here, but I have an old toilet and pedestal sink (and associated hardware) from the Hole Mansion. I was asked to help with some construction at the Divine Word Seminary in the late 1970's, and one of the things we were tasked with was renovating the plumbing in the Hole Mansion. Now that I look back at it, I'm pretty sure the Divine Word Seminary didn't pull any permits, but at the time I really didn't know about protecting historic artifacts. I was a teenager working to pay for college, and I just did the work that they wanted. Although we took most of the "junk" to the dump, I kept one toilet and pedestal sink. That was over 40 years ago, and I just found while clearing out my garage rafters. I don't know what I can or should do with it. If there is a need or requirement to save it, I'd be more than happy to donate it to the proper authority. Otherwise I will probably clean it up and see if anyone wants to buy it. But I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing, and am just not sure what the right thing is.

Any help would be appreciated!
