2017 FALL UPDATES

OUR SUMMER WAS A BUSY ONE AND WE APPRECIATE ALL OF OUR VISITORS. THE VOLUNTEERS TRULY ENJOY "SHOWING OFF" THE MANY AWESOME PIECES OF OUR LOCAL HISTORY THAT WE HAVE ON DISPLAY. REMEMBER WE ARE CARETAKERS OF 4, YES FOUR, BUILDINGS SO THERE IS LOTS TO SEE. WE ARE OPEN YEAR AROUND AND IF THERE ISN'T ANYONE AT THE MUSEUM WHEN YOU STOP BY, PLEASE CALL ONE OF THE PHONE NUMBERS POSTED ON THE MAIN DOOR.  SOMEONE WILL ARRIVE SHORTLY TO GIVE YOU A GRAND TOUR OR ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. STEP INTO OUR MUSEUM FOR A UNIQUE STEP BACK IN TIME.

OUR NEW SIDEWALK / RAMP PROJECT WAS COMPLETED THIS SUMMER AND WE ARE THANKFUL FOR THE EASIER AND SAFER ACCESS TO THE MAIN BUILDING.  IT IS A VISUAL IMPROVEMENT TO THE ENTRANCE AS WELL. THE LARGE CEILING FANS INSTALLED IN THE ANNEX CERTAINLY HELP WITH MAINTAINING COMFORT FOR VISITORS STOPPING BY DURING THE NEBRASKA HEAT WAVES!

THE NEWEST ADDITION IS THE LARGE MAPBOARD INSTALLED ON THE OUTSIDE WALL OF THE ANNEX.  THIS MAP HAS BEEN A WORK IN PROGRESS FOR QUITE SOMETIME AS ALOT OF RESEARCH WAS NEEDED TO GET ACCURATE LOCATIONS OF NON-EXISTENT BUILDINGS.  THIS PROFESSIONAL MAP SHOWS THE LOCATION OF THE 7 VALLEYS, THE PAST LOCATIONS OF SCHOOL HOUSES, CHURCHES AND POST OFFICES AS WELL AS PRESENT DAY CEMETERIES. IT IS BOTH VERY EDUCATIONAL AND INFORMATIONAL ...AND A WORK OF ART AS WELL. WE HAVE HAD MANY, MANY POSITIVE COMMENTS ON THE NEW MAP. 

WE TRY TO UPDATE OUR DISPLAYS REGULARLY .... AND WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE RECENTLY RECEIVED A RESTORED GAS PUMP THAT IS LOCATED IN THE ANNEX. YOU DON'T SEE THESE GAS PUMPS OFTEN SO STOP IN TO CHECK IT OUT.
