LEGACY OF THE PLAINS
Construction in full swing
The hump is gone, a new entrance has been opened, and we have a nice red rock parking lot. Concrete work will soon begin and steel erection is expected to take place the first part of June. We are reviewing our first set of documents from Exhibit Design Associates who have come up with some exciting preliminary ideas and suggestions for our museum. Stay tuned!!
