Due to COVID 19 concerns the Museum
will be closed until further notice
The Ashwaubenon Historical Society has received a $20,000 challenge grant from the David L. and Rita E. Nelson Family Fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. The grant will be used toward the expansion and remodel project at the Museum of History and Culture. Fundraising continues to complete the transformation of the former Ashwaubenon Community Center into the Museum's permanent home.
Phase One of the project is an addition to the building, which will include a climate-controlled storage room for archived materials, and space for the Society's restored 1941 fire engine. Phase Two will convert the existing storage space into a Community Room, dedicated to those who have served their community and their country. It will include an expanded military veterans' display and a resource center for use by the Historical Society and community members for research, exhibits, meetings and special events.
The total cost of the project is $172,000. The Historical Society currently has $34,825 in the project fund, and is continuing fundraising with a goal of beginning construction in 2021. If you would like more information, or to contribute to the project, please leave a message at 920-429-2863, or online at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contributions can also be mailed to the Ashwaubenon Historical Society, 936 Anderson Drive, Green Bay, WI, 54304.
