We would like to invite all of our friends, followers, and community to our 2023 annual meeting. This open meeting is to elect new executive board members, discuss the last year, make plans and ideas for the upcoming year, and join together to make the right decisions going forward into the preservation of our grounds and collections.
We would love to everyone that has taken a tour, visited us through an event, volunteered, or has just followed our journey online to come out and join us for this meeting! We want to hear from our community and join together to bring the types of events, presentations, demonstrations, and outreach that our community and friends are looking for!
Without support like yours, Grand Meadow would not be able to achieve the milestones it has in the last few years, we look forward to seeing you on April 2nd!

Today was a bittersweet day.
We had a successful work day of removing the front exterior wall of the Grand Meadow general store. We saved as many blocks as we could so when the new storage building is erected we can put the store front back up in memoriam of the original building.
This project took just over three hours with the amazing help of all of our volunteers! Thank you so much Dustin Vallejo Joel Volkert Becky Todd Larry Brosamle Jeannie Brosamle and their granddaughter, @Jerry Townsend Bill Sokolowski Kinyon Melton Bethany Grell . You’re help today made this project a success and we couldn’t accomplish and of our projects without volunteer support!
Right now the remaining structure is unsafe so we ask that everyone not go into it and explore. In the coming weeks it will be taken care of and the grounds will be prepped for the new building. We will keep everyone updated, and be on the lookout for movie ideas and festival news!

Grand Meadow Heritage 

The museum is in an old elementary/high school building that was built in 1920. Over the years it has expanded to include other items of interest on the old school grounds.

I love the video tours you are doing! I think my dad (Russ) would have loved to be a part of this. They make me smile! Keep up the great work!
