Expand Parking Lot on Greenway

$625 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 5 months

The Big Bear Valley Historical Museum is in critical need of funds. Due to the expected closure of our main parking lot, we need a budget to hire contractors and expand our parking at Greenway entrance.

The Airport is going to close off our parking lot at the Museum for their safety zone. This will be a major blow to us and could put us out of business.

Our all volunteer Museum provides a valley-wide benefit to both children and adults. By preserving the past, we preserve a rich heritage for our future generations.

The Big Bear Valley Historical Society was founded in November of 1967 by a small group of people who wished to preserve the colorful past of this high mountain valley. It's an organization of people dedicated to preserving the rich history of the area and promoting an appreciation of its colorful and diverse heritage.

In addition to hosting historical tours and featured speakers, the Society operates a Historical Museum with an extensive collection of artifacts, featuring exhibits from the indigenous Serrano Indians, the gold mining era, cowboys and cattle ranching, logging, fox farming and early winter sports.

In order to be ready for our Memorial Day Weekend opening, we need funds immediately. Please take a moment and help us set up a budget for this unexpected expense. Donate Now!

We met with the Airport Board and an ad-hoc committee was established to find a solution. We will loose the parking lot, it's only a matter of time. We need to hire contractors, architects, and equipment. Our first step is to apply for an easement with Caltrans. I heard the application alone costs $4000!

All funds raised go directly to the Museum.
