Materials have been delivered and construction is beginning on our expanded Museum Display Building with the addition of a two-story steel and concrete structure to the existing building to give us an additional 12,000 square feet. The first phase is to construct the exterior walls as well as lighting, heating, windows, doors and the second floor. The next phase will be to finish the interior with a theater, classrooms, research library, gift shop, bathrooms and office space. The current Display Building will be freed up for a display area and functional museum space. The new section will give us room for classes, meeting rooms, banquets and school field trips.
We are seeking contributions of money and like-kind donations, such as building materials to make this happen. An endowment fund will be established to receive donations for long-term support. All donations are tax deductible. See the plans for the new building.
