Enriching Community Life Through Education & Preservation

We carry out that mission through the following programs and projects:

Guest lecturers,presentations and panel discussions about local, state, regional and national topics
Tours for school groups, scouts, and other youth and adult organizations
Newsletters, pamphlets and other publications
Encouragement of long-time residents, newcomers and visitors to delve into local and regional history
Special events and public programs, such as Ghost Walks and Wild West Evening
Acquisition, archiving and care of historic artifacts, documents, oral histories and photographs that enhance the role of the Museum on Main Street as an architectural and cultural resource.
