BEATRICE – Travelers along West Court Street have likely noticed the new electronic message board that’s been installed at the Gage County Historical Museum.
The sign is within a fenced in area where a train caboose is located, along the north side of the highway.
Museum Administrator Megan Sothan says just installing it was a big of a trick in the wintry weather…and there’s still some work to do, to get it ready for use.
:26 “and use it”
The goal was to make it very visible along the highway, but it’s position also gives motorists a good look at it, traveling 2nd, the brick street in front of the museum.
Sothan says the message board will promote both the museum and events around the area.
:23 “on the sign”
The project was part of a larger capital project and campaign that made improvements along North 2nd Street and on the Gage County Museum grounds.
Sothan says the historical society is also conducting a capital campaign where donors can have bricks inscribed in the east walkway to the museum.
:21 “your business”
Proceeds go for the museum’s capital campaign.
