History doesn’t stand still. Like a child, it’s always moving, changing, growing — blazing new trails to the future. That’s why we’re chairing the Stuhr Museum Foundation’s 2022 “Blaze a Trail” Annual Fund Drive. As the parents of two small children, we have a special appreciation for Stuhr Museum. Many local residents grew up with Stuhr, attending special events and summer classes. Now, like us, they bring their children to the museum to build their own cherished memories.
Stuhr Museum boasts a cornucopia of activities for families, from exploring Railroad Town’s historic homes and businesses to strolling the museum’s park-like grounds. Alumni of Stuhr’s HATS program and Summer Adventures can gain new perspectives of how history impacts our lives today by seeing it afresh through adult eyes.
It’s all part of Stuhr’s mission to deliver not just staid, static exhibits but dynamic living history experiences. More and more, those include year-round opportunities, like the new Glaciarium. All the things Stuhr provides require increasing contributions from the Stuhr Museum Foundation, but considering the quality of life our community gains and the museum’s $5.88 million annual economic impact, we believe it’s a good investment.
History, like a growing child, needs nurturing to reach its full potential.
