The Heritage Board of Directors Announce
Permanent Exhibit Planning Begins
The Heritage Museum and Cultural Center Board of Directors have commenced planning for the first part of a new permanent exhibit about the history of the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area.
The exhibit will be installed in phases and is projected to occupy the entire second floor of the museum. It will contain artifacts, historical photographs, maps and digital displays that will enable it to be updated and kept fresh over the years. It is anticipated that it will become an important historical resource for children and adults to learn about the area in which they live and how it developed over the centuries.
Areas of interest will include the economy, immigrant groups, urban development, tourism, agriculture, transportation, social groups, everyday life and important local residents. Responsibility for overseeing the planning process is The Heritage History Committee, chaired by Stephen Byrns.
