Shafer Historical Museum


It is with great gratitude the Board of Directors thanks all who donated to the Shafer Museum during October in the GiveMethow campaign. As soon as the snow melts, plans for pathways will begin.

Missed it? Or, want to give more to support the preservation of local history in our rural community? Gifts are always welcome and Giving Tuesday is another day to show your support.

Donations will be used to support operations, artifact conservation, outreach and training volunteers at the museum.

Thank you!
