New Carriage Shed!

One of our greatest accomplishments for 2014 was the building of our new carriage shed.
This was made possible thanks to all the donors from far away to locals whom supported this
project and for all the fundraisers we have put on over the past couple of years. Thank you to
our House Committee Chairman, Lenny Chapman for his leadership throughout this project
and Travis Wendel from Pioneer Timber Frame for constructing it. We are very excited for the
opportunity to display our large artifacts that have been in storage for so long. They include a
local doctor’s buggy, a sleigh and the old safe from the high school along with many other items
of interest. Once we get some landscaping around the building completed this spring and
displays in place we will hold an open house for all to enjoy.
