Special Projects


All of our projects are completed by volunteers who lend their valuable time, experience, and expertise to the Historical Village. If you would like to help us with any of the projects listed below, please visit our Volunteers section for more information about the project and volunteering.

Pullman Observation & Cafe Car

Ed & Cece Hellman donated the railroad car to the Village in 2011 and it will be renovated at it's new home next to the depot building.

Labeling Items in the Implement Building

Many tems are without labels. Information such as history and donor need to be added to each artifact.

The Bryan Pavilion

This is the next big project on our list - adding the pavilion to the Panora Depot to restore it to its 1906 appearance.

Lenon Mill Display

Several original items from the old Lenon Mill, including a swing sifter, were recently donated to the museum. A new display will be created this season to house the large artifacts.
