Military Heritage - New Building

$10,000 goal

Campaign created 14 months ago
Our collection comprises artifacts almost from the birth of our Nation to the current day. The collection of artwork is spectacular consisting of many prominent US artists in a number of mediums. We have over a thousand pieces of uniform going as far back as the Philippine insurrection to those of modern US Air Force Gunship Crewmen. Our fleet of operational vehicles range from motorcycles through Jeeps to massive trucks and armored vehicles.

For a number of years we have been able to squeeze everyone and everything into the museum, however, it's not really a workable solution anymore and this past year the problem has become acute. As we continue to make strides with a number of organizations using the museum and find more all the time, this has already translated into much larger (50+) groups along with an increase in requests by local community nonprofit groups to hold events here.

We find ourselves stretched beyond capacity handling the larger number of visitors and notwithstanding that, we also need space to properly display the new material we have received and add high-security storage for items currently held off-site. 

From the very beginning its always been our goal to bring history into our community as an investment for the future, therefore we do not charge admission, to use the facility, nor do we charge for any of our events. The museum is freely accessible to everyone. 

Donations and the support we receive from the local community and businesses handle the bulk of our operational costs, however, we never accumulate capital for projects such as this. We have never received any public or other funding and we have to date built three buildings, a large fleet of operational military vehicles, and a world-class collection of military artifacts.   

The plan is to build a metal building shell on a slab 80ft x 30ft x 16ft, we just need the shell built, we will complete the interior and connect to the existing structure.

The new building will make a big difference, it will give us space to bring more of the collection to our visitors, expand our programs/activities, and manage and restore more exhibits.

Our website is located at: www.militaryheritagecollection.org or you can follow us on Facebook under 'Military Heritage Collection of North Texas'

Thanks much & if you have any questions please call Jon Scott @ (800) 900-1943
