The Eaton Area Historical Society is eager to begin construction on a new Carriage House to be built behind the existing A.J. Eaton House Museum.
The current Museum space is well-utilized for display of numerous collections owned and curated by the EAHS, but does not provide enough space to allow for adequate display and interpretation of all the valuable and fascinating historical items that have been acquired by and donated to the museum.
The current (not historical) garage behind the museum will be removed and replaced with a 1400 square foot, two story carriage house-style building in which the EAHS proposes to display our military, school, and agriculture collections. In addition to the much-needed expanded exhibit space, the Carriage House will provide important weather-safe storage areas.
The plans include many possibilities for the venue to be used as a special gathering place for community and surrounding area activities and social events.
Would you like to join us in this effort? We have a fund raising goal of $250,000 to be raised by March of 2019. We are currently at $50,000. Help us get to the total by following the secure link below to donate via PayPal or send a check directly to the Museum.
