FCHM Building Expansion Project
Freeborn County Historical Museum
Freeborn County Historical Society Building Expansion
Watch and Help us Grow...

After multiple years in the making, Freeborn County Historical Museum nears completion of the more
than $1.7 million expansion.

Dear Friends,
The Museum is at a turning Point. Our current space does not allow us to continue accepting new items or displaying properly the
ones we have. To move forward we need to expand to better meet the needs of Freeborn County residents.
Your contribution is important because every gift will help. There is no such thing as a gift too small or too large. We ask that you
join me in building our future so that we can preserve our past.
Pat Mulso
Executive Director
Freeborn County Historical Museum
