LETTER: Lots to see, do at Heritage Hall Museum & Archives
We have been thrilled to welcome visitors to Heritage Hall Museum & Archives after the year-long lull resulting from Covid-19. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve had a steady stream of guests, with representation from Alabama to Arizona and many places in-between.
We’re looking forward to a busy summer of people discovering our local history and seeing all the changes we’ve made over the past year. Recently, one of the guests left this in our comment book: “Fantastic museum! More than expected and better than imagined.” Another wrote, “Wonderful place to visit! Will come back!”
This summer is also a busy time for our staff and volunteers as we tackle some pretty big projects. We’re planning an exterior facelift — thanks in large part to the grant from the Freeman Community Foundation — and will continue updating more of our exhibits and refreshing our historic buildings, including restorations to the Deckert House.
And we could use some help.
If you are part of an organization or group looking for a local community service project, we’d love to visit with you about some of the opportunities at your local museum. It doesn’t have to be a large group or a long-term commitment. Of course, it doesn’t even have to be a group; we welcome individual volunteers.
But we’d love to have some help; give us a call at 605-925-7545.
Thanks for your support.
