Museum to remain open during Roof Work
The Dubois County Museum announces that work will begin on Monday, September 14, to replace the building’s roof covering the majority of Room Two. Items in Room Two include the farm machinery and log house display, as well as, the trains’ area and the collection of wildlife in the Wildlife Adventure Room. This work project will replace over 40,000 square feet of the building’s roof. Schmidt Contracting will be doing the work. Money raised for this project came from fundraisers held and from the support of the membership, local businesses and donors. While the work is being done, the artifacts and all collection items will be moved or covered to insure that they are protected and preserved. The Museum Board of Directors at this time have decided to close the portion under construction, but will keep the upper level open which encompasses the upper Room 1 with early history, early settlement, sports, military, ATHENA display and businesses, Room Three with its picture gallery and the Main Street area with its seventeen shops. Donations for this project are still being accepted.
