Renovation Update

The Museum interior construction work has been completed. It has taken a tremendous amount of hard work and time, but the building is now at a point that will allow it to be used again for meetings. The entire inside – walls and ceiling – have been painted, floors have been refinished and the electrical work is completed.  Our extensive collection of historical items has been unpacked, cleaned, identified, and placed on display. This has been a major undertaking that was desperately needed and was made possible by countless volunteer hours, donations from the board and the community, and grants.
