Facilities & Historic Preservation "Rusty Metal" Gang 

Get hands-on with the artifacts, buildings, put up exhibit signs, fix-up...doing all sorts of repairing, building, tinkering, and working on artifacts, displays, and rehabilitating the historic buildings. If you have skills you can teach others, all the better! We always need people with experience construction, engineering, and/or handy-person skills.
