And unlike many museums today, Hoofprints of the Past does not hide away its artifacts in storage, but shares them with the public through a number of old-time displays including a:
• School house
• Mercantile Store
• Post Office
• Blacksmith shop
• Doctor’s buggy
The Museum also has held a number of events for the public that help share local history, such as:
• Western Plays
• Musical Performances
• Historical Presentations and Book Signings
The museum has produced DVD’s of many of these events, which are for sale in our museum store. Our store also carries a large number of books on local history, western posters and art, cards, and t-shirts.
