Preservation, maintenance and education activities are costly, but not as costly as the loss of a historic collection and our historic culture. Once an item is professionally preserved, the upkeep and maintenance continues on a regular basis. We have thousands of artifacts in the Museum’s collection. Operating expenses for preservation materials, a temperature and humidity controlled environment, utilities, and salaries are all part of the cost.
Join with others who are interested in preserving an important part of our heritage. You will be a partner with us in providing a lasting cultural and educational resource to the community, to the region and beyond. You will help us bridge the past and the the future.
