MCHS Updates

April 5:

Things keep trucking along for the MCHS - we are working feverishly on renovating our former shop room in the basement - turning it into new display areas and partial storage room which will greatly enhance the room's use and benefit the museum!

For sale, if you haven't already seen, is our newest publication - Tales of Martin County by our own Lenny Tvedten. The book costs $20 in house (more if we mail them).
