A WORK IN PROGRESS
A review from 1/18/2007
& history of museum.
Plans are being made to open this spring sometime. Jean is still seeking pictures of old Story, especially the original Buckingham Hall and the 7th Day Adventist Church. Any photos of business establishments such as the Dynamite Cafe would be appreciated.
Items have been received from
the Marshall Wolfe family and the C. P. Story family. If anyone
has memorabilia they would like to donate you can contact Jean Lunbeck:
In 1952 the women of the Story Woman's
Club were approached by the Pioneer Association of Sheridan County to
let them erect a museum building on the club property or attach it to
the clubhouse proper, but no action was taken on this matter.
At a meeting of the Story Woman's Club in 2001, the Centennial year for Story, Jean Lunbeck brought before the club the idea of the Woman's Club starting a museum. The women of the club agreed to do this and are working toward this goal.
Jim and Lois Balkenbush donated a small building for this project and Chris and Ken Carzoli donated their time and labor to build a foundation and move the building to the Story Woman's Club grounds.
There have been fund raisers, memorial gifts and donations toward getting this Story Centennial Museum started.
We are now registered with the State of Wy. as a non-profit corporation and are working toward getting a 501C3 status with the IRS.
Dick Petrie, Bill Kirkpatrick and George Elliott donated their time and labor to add decking and skirting to the building so that we can start a small museum and progress from there, perhaps later adding a room onto the clubhouse proper.
Anyone interested with this project in any way with time, labor, money or items to be displayed please contact Jean Lunbeck, at 307-683-2497 or Ina Mitchell at 307-683-2331.
