Well, maybe the word “new” is a poor choice since we are talking about a museum; however, we are making some big progress at the Comanche County Historical Museum, and we are all very excited to tell you about it.
At the moment we are working in the Comanche Room, and when we finish, we will be able to give our guests a chronological story of the highlights of Comanche, Texas and the surrounding area. We are also working on the details for a new display that I think will interest many.
The plan is to finish that one room and begin on the next…until finally all fourteen rooms tell a story that is easy to find and, hopefully, hard to forget.
Obviously, we are volunteers and we are few, insuring that our progress is very slow. We could also really use your help if you can spare us a Thursday afternoon or ten. The yard work and cleaning alone can be pretty overwhelming. Plus, as part of our new project, we need photos scanned, copies made, labels made, and the list just continues on.
If you enjoy preserving the past or if you’d just like to find a place where you can help serve the community, call Fredda at 325-280-9083.
We’ll put you to work!
(And don’t forget, we are still working on family history notebooks and would love to include your family!)
