Adapt. Grow. Preserve.

Those are three things our family business and Stuhr Museum have in common — and why we are chairing the Stuhr Museum Foundation’s 2021 “Pioneering Possibilities” Annual Fund Drive.

Bartenbach’s began in 1880 when another George Bartenbach turned someone else’s failure into his success. When he learned that a local pharmacist was getting out of the paint business, that George decided to jump in. Over five generations and 140 years, Bartenbach’s continued to adapt and grow, adding an opera house, interior decorating, fine art and custom framing.

Our family has always realized that a growing community needs not just utilitarian goods but beautification and culture, as well. That’s why we’ve always been proud supporters of Stuhr Museum. We’ve volunteered our time with Wings Over the Platte, donated artifacts from our business and shared the stories behind those bits of history.

But even that’s not enough without appropriate preservation and presentation. Properly caring for Stuhr’s irreplaceable historic
artifacts and helping the museum create unique, immersive, educational and cultural experiences require all our support.
We’re proud to join with corporate sponsor Beavercreek Marketing in preserving all the opportunities Stuhr Museum provides our community, as well as the museum’s $5.88 million economic impact.

Bart and Marla Bartenbach stand poised and ready to chair our 2021 Annual Fund Drive.

Please join us in helping the Stuhr Museum Foundation reach its $160,000 goal.
