It's Official!

For years the PCHS has held our meetings in community churches, fire stations and even private homes.  That is about to change.

The "Annex" located at McGraw Memorial Park has been cleaned out of years of accumulated items.  Some items have been relocated to other buildings or put in storage.  Those items that have no historical value or usefulness have been sold or discarded.  

There is still more work to be done, but we are close enough now that we want to reconfigure the room to allow us to host presentations at the Annex.

In preparation we will need audio/ visual equipment, chairs, file cabinets, and a small kitchenette just to get started.  Once completed, we will begin work on designing historical displays. Funding for this endeavor is of concern, especially this year.  Like so many businesses, our sources of funding has been greatly reduced.  

This donation feature below will allow you to make a donation to a variety of special projects. Or, you can simply designate your donation to the General Fund to go toward our ongoing expenses.  All other donations will be restricted to your “special project”.

Thank you for your continued support of the Park County Historical Society.
