Stuhr Musuem "Best Preserved Pioneer Town"
Posted on 01/01/2000
GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – Stuhr Museum’s Railroad Town has been selected by the readers of True West Magazine as the “Best Preserved Pioneer Town” of the West.
This award was one of several given out by the magazine, all voted on by its national readership. This is the second time Stuhr Museum has won an award from True West with the first time coming in 2007 when Stuhr was included in their “Best of the West” award feature.
“This award is a testament to your hard work and tenacity to be the best in your category and it is recognized by the people who love the West as much as you do,” Sheri Riley, with True West Magazine, wrote in a letter accompanying the award.
Stuhr Museum’s Railroad Town includes over 40 structures encompassing four blocks and is the location for special events, classes, rentals, trainings and is a daily attraction from May 1 – Labor Day each year. It’s a museum attraction that is unique in Nebraska and only a handful of other museums in the country can boast a Living History community that compares with Railroad Town.
Stuhr Museum is very proud to receive this award and to be recognized on a national scale for our work in portraying the history of our pioneer ancestors. For more information, log onto www.stuhrmuseum.org for call the museum at (308) 385-5316.
