Construction continues at the Dutch-American Heritage Museum

Work continues on the Dutch-American Heritage Museum in Orange City. The work includes updates and site improvements after a successful capital campaign that took place in 2020.

Committee members recently shared progress images and updates based on recent work.

New doors and trim have been installed where the military artifacts were previously showcased in the main museum building. The Annex will be the new home for the military collection, so this small area is reverting back to a much-needed office and storage space.

Many artifacts are waiting to go to new spaces in the Annex and middle section of the museum building.

One of the items funded in the campaign was new exhibit displays. This movable wall is now painted and ready for exhibits on early commerce and agricultural life. It will be part of the newly revamped exhibits on the east side of this section in the main museum building.

This long platform will be painted soon and will feature an exhibit on agricultural life. This exhibit will also be located on the east side of the museum.

These two large boxes will sit atop the long platform and provide for a tiered display.
