Goal: ‘A permanent place’

November 20, 2007

To the Editor:

As we enter the final phase of renovating the historical building at 2812 N. 155th a museum, the Basehor Historical Society wants to publicly thank the financial supporters, the volunteers, businesses, and contractors that gave of their money, their labor, products and advice.

Our goal to have a permanent place to house the history of our community, the impact the Basehor Brothers and early settlers had on our community, the amount of memorabilia available, and the amount of materials for the archives.

The "drop ins" with their questions during the renovation open house demonstrated a great deal of interest by people of all ages. Also, the local teachers doing a unit of study on Basehor in their classes, students' choosing to do research papers on our community, and the many contacts made about donating or lending artifacts has been phenomenal.

Our deep thanks and appreciation to you all and with your continued interest and support the museum will be a project that we can point to with pride.
