What is the church to museum all about ?







Museum News

April 2022 -  We have raised an impressive $369,000 of the $585,000 goal to get the Bartlett Historical Museum open for visitors.  We thank everyone who has pitched-in to make this a reality.  

There is still a way to go and we are hopeful that more folks will step forward and send us whatever is comfortable.  No amount is too small...your support is critical now.  

We have created a NEW website section that shows you our current budgets:

    - The first shows you how past donations have been spent.

     - The next one shows  exactly what we need to complete the Museum and get it open for you to visit. 

      - Perhaps you are in a position to donate an item on our budget list instead of cash?

The NEW section shows various gifting needs, an updated floor plan, and a detailed history of the beginnings of the St. Josephs Church in the 1880's.  And, of course, there is a donor form that you can print and mail to us or charge it on a credit card.

Have you seen your old church recently ?  

These photos show the progress that has occurred in the past 6 months.  The interior has been stripped out, hazardous material removed and the walls anchored.  None of this could have happened without your financial support.  Thank You.
