Major construction wrapped up on the new heritage center exhibits.  This is a major milestone that would not have been possible without the generosity of our supporters.  The heating and air system is being installed this week, as well as finishing up the trim work on various exhibits.  With construction concluding this week, we will start painting and waxing the floors in the next few weeks.  Our goal is to install the exhibits this winter and be ready to open by April 1.
