Library Fundraiser

Did you know our church/library was the original Catholic Church in Bishop located on West Elm Street? It was built in 1921 and moved to the museum in 1972. The entire structure was moved in a single piece.

We are ready to take on a major restoration project. The 101 year-old building needs to have the exterior shingles replaced with fire resistant material. This is a structural necessity to stop water permeating and further damaging the interior walls. Preserving history gives us the opportunity to have a conversation with our past about our future. To learn about ourselves and educate future generations.
Your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
