We bring history to life to restore and protect our great American way of life.
We encourage the imagination of the public and especially in our educational programs we take to schools.
We work to preserve the history of Northern Weld County's diverse historic places, historic buildings, and the spirit of those who came here as pioneers, homesteaders and farmers.
The Northern Drylanders museum will present programs in the area schools, including subjects about Indians, the trappers, the explorers, the cowboys and the homesteaders of North Weld.
Tours and lectures for children and adults will be available at the museum during our regular hours: Sundays 1 to 4 pm., or by appointment thru the curator (Ivan Wilson 970-897-2215).
The museum will be closed during the winter. An anouncement will be made as to the extended times at a later date.
All are welcome to join and help us build this museum. Many areas are available for volunteers.
