The Boone County Historical Society is seeking $5,600 for a museum security system. This system will feature five cameras and allow us to better ensure both the safety of our collection and the safety of our visitors.  To donate please click here and follow the instructions on the Big Give website.

In 2017 our organization raised funds for a new storage shed.  A location has been selected and we are currently reviewing bids for this new building.

In 2016 our organization raised funds to reshingle the Gladdem farmhouse and the Mobile filling station building and to paint the filling station and the country school house.  The reshingling was completed in July of 2017 and the painting was completed in the Spring of 2018.

In 2015 our organization raised funds for adding heating and air conditioning to our main museum building.  This work was completed in 2017.

In 2014 our organization raised funds for the restoration of our buggy.  Unfortunately, the restorer we had planed to use has retired.  We have since found a new restorer and this project was completed during in the Spring of 2018.
