Mining & Ranching Building (also known as the Pole Barn)
The Foundation will kick off a campaign to raise $25,000 to improve and update this extensive exhibit. Funds will be used to:
- Increase access and safe navigation of the large exhibit space, bringing it into ADA compliance;
- Add a blacksmith shop to the three existing artisan exhibits in the Pole Barn (Wood working, Printing/Publishing, and Weaving);
- Complete the extensive rework of the museum’s remarkable rock, gem and mineral exhibit; and
- Enable the Museum to better showcase the extensive collection of Farming, Mining and Ranching technologies that were pioneered during the Gold Rush.
