DOUGLAS COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY


We have started a Fundraising Campaign to raise $100,000 of matching funds for the New Outdoor

Ranching & Agricultural Heritage Exhibit 

We hope to raise these funds to receive a $229,500 Edwin L. Wiegand Trust Grant we have been offered to help build this Exhibit. To qualify for this grant we must raise these matching funds by Dec 1, 2018. Please consider donating to this campaign to help save the Ranching & Agricultural Heritage of the Carson Valley.

The Historical Society has a substantial collection of artifacts from the early ranches and farms in Carson Valley and the creation of this outdoor exhibit will make room for the safe and secure presentation of this collection, including providing space for the collection as it grows. In addition we will be giving the history of agriculture in Douglas County an exhibit worthy of its significance.
Plus this exemplifies our mission statement, ‘…to seek to enrich lives by preserving local history and making it accessible to our communities and visitors.’
