$10.00

It’s almost closing time at the Creston Museum, when you happen across a strange person, dressed in period clothing and appearing terribly confused. It seems a person from Creston’s past has stumbled into our own time! The objects on display seem to trigger this person’s memory – can you unravel the clues and identify our mysterious visitor? It’s a live-history-theatre production, and there will be two public performances, at 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM on Wednesday, June 21. Audiences are…

Here at the Creston Museum, we use two-way radios to help our staff communicate with each other during guided tours, events, and programs. They're also a big part of how we would keep everyone safe if we ever have an emergency here. We need a minimum of four radios, and Bill Doeleman of Creston Driving Academy is helping us buy two of them. He has very generously donated two $200 gift certificates, good for any vehicle or motorcycle lesson package.…

Trucks are pretty much the last thing that comes to mind when we think about farming, but they were everywhere. Faster and more road-worthy than tractors, able to go much longer distances than horses: trucks were, from a very early period in Creston Valley’s history, the number-one way of getting all the valley’s agricultural production to market. Join us as we celebrate this often-overlooked aspect of local farming. The Creston Museum has two farm trucks of its own: a 1921…

This is a logging arch. It’s a horse-drawn log-skidding machine. It has ten-foot-high wheels and weighs about two thousand pounds. Think you could load it with logs and drag it through an obstacle course? Just kidding! We’ll use the scale-model replica instead. It’s just two-and-a-half feet high and weighs about forty pounds – but it can skid a decent-sized log. So here’s the challenge: Load the model logging arch with a log, using a peavey, cant hook, and/or log tongs…
