  • The McPherson Museum and Arts Foundation recently received funds from the McPherson County Community Foundation.
    The $1 million gift was made possible by an expendable fund established with the foundation in 2005. The purpose of the fund was to leverage additional gifts from individuals and private foundations for the McPherson Museum capital campaign. All funds will be used for the construction of the new facility at 1111 E. Kansas Ave., McPherson.
    Highlights of the new facility include a McPherson exhibit hall, feature exhibit hall, art gallery, gathering hall, model train exhibit, theater, oral history room and catering kitchen. Anticipated completion of the project is late June of 2013. For more information, visit www.mcphersonmuseum.com or call 620-241-8464.
