In August, Jeeves is looking forward to re-visiting many of the museums on The Heritage Trail. It’s a great event. However, he wonders why Lincoln Area Archives Museum (253-9972) is not on the list of participating museums. Jeeves knows that many volunteers including museum founder Jerry Logan, Wes Freeman and Shirley Russell have worked very hard to make Lincoln’s museum a showcase for our local history. Lincoln’s museum, which is located at 472 E Street, is open Monday to Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until noon, Thursday from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Jeeves is very proud of our museum and hopes that everyone will visit it soon. He also hopes that Lincoln Area Archives Museum will be listed on the fourth annual Heritage Trail.
