This summer we updated our mission statement, recommitting ourselves to engaging the community and enabling life-long exploration of history. Our vision to enrich lives will happen as we connect our experiences to the past and as we connect people to each other. Every day at the Village we make those connections that build community.
We couldn’t build that community without you! Through your financial support of the Village, you fund the immersive programs, history talks, and community events that bring collections, buildings, and stories to life.
Take, for example, the first graders who visit the Village. When they visit the Log Cabin and use artifacts like butter churns and rug beaters, they’re learning about the lives of children in previous generations. They make tangible connections to the past as they ask, “How would my life have been different if I had lived back then? How might my life have been the same?” They learn to explore and celebrate differences and similarities – these skills will be essential as they find their place in a larger community.
How many connections have we made? You have helped us reach:
- 6,797 students, chaperones, and teachers in our school programs this last year and
- 89,829 students, chaperones, and teachers over the last 10 years!
- 15,393 people in our programs, classes, history talks, and community events this last year and
- 129,918 people in these activities over the last 10 years!
Thank you for supporting us through COVID in 2020 and 2021. Please consider making a donation this year so we can build more community through connections in the years to come!
