Measurable Outcome(s)

The short-term goal was to hire Museology to research World War I history of 10 counties in West Central Minnesota to use in the development of a traveling exhibit to honor the 100th anniversary of the United States involvement in World War I. KCHS was to receive a final written and verbal report done by Museology. That task has been completed. We achieved these results due to the professional nature of Museology and the help and coordination of all the local historical societies and museums.
