Kid's Visit 

May 4, 2011: 125 Rose Hill third grade students visited the museum.
The kids rotated through 5 stations that explained some history and how things were accomplished in the early days.

Floor Repair 

September 2011: The floor in the kitchen area of the museum had become saggy and soft. The city suggested we close down a while, tear up the old floor and they would help us rebuild. We were able to acquire a selection of pre-finished hardwood flooring for a very good price. Once the old floor was removed it was determined complete replacement of supports and all was necessary. Work was performed by Brad Bradford, Craig Linot, Melvin Linot, Keith Cox, Jeff Linot and Cindy Bradford. Clean up was necessary to prepare the museum for visitors during the annual Fall Festival celebration the following weekend.

Scouts Visit 

October 29, 2013: A small group of Cub Scouts visited the museum.
Kendrick Holland, Nicholas Theisen, Gage Frazier, AJ Reed, and Trystan Lacoss appeared to have a good time.
They especially liked the uniforms and all the old pictures.

Harris Visit 

March 28, 2013: The Harris family played a prominent role in Rose Hill's early development. We were honored to have some of the Harris descendants and friends visit. Those pictured represent the families of Marcia Harris, Stanley Harris and Gracia Harris. Chris Wendt captured the occasion with these nice pictures.
