Our Plans have been ongoing throughout our history. As for the next few years, we are planning integral strategic plans to promote and restore history. Our first goal is to bring our third section of the Museum to public viewing standards. We also have an ongoing project of developing the archival program by cataloging and stabilizing the collections. In concurrence with the archives, we will be developing an online archives department, accessible to members of the society. We also have ongoing plans for fundraising and promoting the museum to keep visitors coming. With our continuing projects, we will make history by preserving history.
