The mansion that belonged to Dorr Felt, who invented (and got rich on)
the comptometer is now an event venue and has a small museum of
artifacts related to Felt and his company. They might be interested in
it. See <http://www.feltmansion.org/>. I happened to stumble across
it recently, it's an interesting place. I had never really known
anything about Dorr Felt before.
