After many years of visitors driving around the block to find
the Museum, a tall, grand sign was placed at the southwest
corner of the museum grounds
in the spring of 2015.

Completely funded by designated donations, it not only
provides highly improved visibility
but also enhances
the Victorian style
of historic preservation
found throughout the grounds.
