New ideas at Ag History Center

By
From page A12 | October 23, 2013 |

The Heidrick Ag History Center’s more than 282 permanent vehicles and farm implements collection remain open to the public, and will soon be joined by more tractors and autos, as well as military vehicles, locally restored vehicles, horse-drawn carts and wagons.

The east wing of the center that used to house the Hays truck collection will now establish new and diverse rotating exhibits that feature vehicles on loan while expanding on the theme of the science and culture of contemporary agriculture. We are considering several options for the 45,000-square-foot east wing and encourage people to contact us about any fresh approaches to hosting events, exhibits and collections.

Bids are being requested for a new security system, exhibit delineators and several engaging exhibits, which are being planned for early 2014. One of the projects that we are eagerly looking forward to is the restoration of a 1917 White truck. The White truck is an excellent example of a WWI-era commercial vehicle, and we invite community members, as well as classic vehicle enthusiasts and others, to roll up their sleeves and join us in restoring this exquisite vehicle.

“The Heidrick Ag History Center has also hired new staff, including museum curator Dawn Einwalter, lobby manager Jared Richardson, and Vikram Chowdary, who will be handling development and marketing,” says executive director Lorili Ostman.

Even as we look to 2014 and beyond, there are still several months left this year, and we have many exciting events coming up, including the second annual Pumpkin Smash Bash fundraiser. So make sure you clear your calendars on Oct. 26 and come dressed in your most ghoulish outfits for some adult trick-or-treating for beer, pumpkin smashing and raffle prizes.

Although we are losing a tenant in the Hays Antique Truck Museum, this is an exciting time for the Heidrick Ag History Center, as we are ushering in a new era of expansion ripe with endless possibilities. Visit us on our website at www.aghistory.org and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Heidrick.Ag, and share your ideas for the east wing.
