The Museum currently has a number of projects going for which the community can be an important part of. These are just a few that are ongoing....
The Museum purchased the Denker lot adjacent to the Depot and we are preparing to do a much needed expansion. This expansion includes moving the historic Holderness Granary, an 1800 +sq ft two story building built in 1910's out of square logs, to the museum property where it will be 'repurposed' to house the Museum's wagon collection, and other large items that are currently either stored off site or outside exposed to the weather. It will also give us some stretching room allowing for new exhibits, space for community outreach education programs, and most importantly adding much needed storage space for our evergrowing collection. Please contact the museum if you are interested in volunteering or donating.
Pat Holderness Interview
The Museum would like to expand on its oral history collection and is constantly on the lookout for people to interview. We have been nominated to be a partner with the Colorado Voice Preserve Project. Through a generous grant through Yampa Valley Caring Consumers we were able to purchase recording equipment to facilitate this project. If you are interested or know of someone who is interested in being interviewed please call the museum at 970-276-4380.
This is an ongoing project where anyone can bring their old photos that are relevant to Northwest Colorado, and/ or people of Northwest Colorado, in to the museum where we will digitalize them. Owners retain the original photo and get a cd of the digitalized images while the museum gets to keep a digital copy to store and use. This is a great way to preserve your family photos while sharing them with future generations. The cost is FREE.
Call the museum to make an appointment.
