If you're afraid of something, do you find it more of a comfort to research it (for example, to arm yourself with facts) or avoid information on it (for instance, so as not to encourage the fear)? Do you have another reason why? Does it depend on the fear?

Value of a handwritten farming journal from 1861?

I found a handwritten farming journal from 1861 at a rummage sale today.  It has a bunch of drawings in it, a couple of news articles, and then the farming information.

I brought it home and my boyfriend thinks we should donate it to a museum of some sort.  Is this a thing?  Would a journal like this actually matter to a museum?

I, of course, want to keep it.  Pictures in comments.
