OPEN HOUSE AT HAIGLER MUSEUMS



Throughout the afternoon of the Tumbleweed Festival, there is open house at both the completed Haigler Country Schoolhouse 67 South Museum and the developing Haigler Cornerstone Museum.  The first Fall Tumbleweed Festival in 2008 was held as a fundraiser for the Country Schoolhouse Museum.  This project was completed in October of 2010.  Last year in 2011; the focus turned to fundraising for the beginning of the Haigler Cornerstone Museum--whose mission is to collect, preserve and display artifacts that reflect the history of Haigler—the “cornerstone” of Nebraska—and the surrounding farming and ranching community.

     Visitors to the museums will notice new additions to the grounds, including one of the original Pioneer Ditch slip buckets; a horse drawn ice cutter; walking plows; and the tower for a wooden wheeled windmill (to be completed in spring of 2013).

     Many wonderful artifacts have been donated by the community, and are on display.   Old bound copies of “The Haigler Newspaper”; the original Haigler Telephone long distance phone booth, cook stoves, cream separators, saddles, jugs, tools, the safe  and ledger from the Haigler Drover’s State Bank, and many more surprises will take you back in time.  The most recent additions inside the Cornerstone Museum include more display cases, Haigler Eagles memorabilia, the life-sized horses displaying old sets of harness (artist Grace Powell will be giving personal tours of her work),  a metal doll house w/ all the room furnishings, mannequins displaying military uniforms of WWI and the Korean War, an authentic WWII army blanket and cot, Parks post office items, and the original pot-bellied stove and bell from the Sanborn Country School. 

     The community is invited to come see all the displays in the museums, and enjoy the activities of the Haigler Tumbleweed Festival.  Anyone wishing to donate dollars and/or items for the museums may contact the Carlocks at 308-297-3226; email:  carlock@bwtelcom.net, or mail:  PO Box 144, Haigler NE 69030.  All donations are tax deductible through the Dundy County Community Foundation.
