LEGACY OF THE PLAINS
Construction in full swing
Red iron is being set in place for our new exhibit/storage building, and a pad is under construction for our 6,000 square foot "wing" on the south side of the main exhibit hall. We are reviewing our second set of documents from Exhibit Design Associates who have come up with some exciting preliminary ideas and suggestions for our new museum. Stay tuned!!
Financial institutions step to the plate
First State Bank, Valley Bank and Trust, and Platte Valley Companies all made significant contributions to the Legacy of the Plains Museum project in recent days. Numerous individuals and businesses are stepping up to offer their financial assistance to combining the North Platte Valley Museum and Farm And Ranch Museum on the FARM campus on the west edge of Gering. A public fundraising campaign is currently underway. If you are interested in helping or making a contribution contact us at (308) 436-5411 (NPVM) or (308) 436-1989 (FARM). All support is greatly appreciated!!!
