Rise to the Occasion – Capital Campaign

In 1975, the Museum purchased the former Masonic lodge at 201 S. College and moved all displays and artifacts there.   At that time the goal was for the museum to utilize the entire building.  Over the next 45 years, that goal was always a dream of the board and members.  Finally that goal is in sight.  With your support, it is possible to install an elevator and renovate both the second and third floors in the near future.

All of the current Board members have committed monetary support.  Now we need your support.

If you would like to help with the capital campaign fundraising or need further information about our plans, please contact Shannon Simpson at 972-937-0681.

We sincerely hope you will choose to assist the Ellis County Museum in becoming one of the most viable places on the historical square for many years to come.

Thank you for your support.
