The Yellow Trail Museum in Hope has been the home of the new Visitor Information Center for the last few months.
This center is a site to help encourage local and county tourism. It is partially supported by the Columbus Area Visitor Center.
And it has the first ever Yellow Trail Museum paid staff member, Paige Waltz.
Since its opening in April we have had many questions like, "What happened to the museum?" or "Can we see the museum if we come to the Visitor Information Center?" or "Is there now an admission charge?"
Our answer is that the museum is still here and is growing in size, displays, and in the number of hours it is open to the public. The museum still has an all-volunteer staff that takes care of the "museum part" of the building. And there is no charge for admission.
Plus we have now added the Yellow Trail Research Center that is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for genealogy research as well as other general historical research.
On July 20, we will host the Grand Opening of the Yellow Trail Museum's Visitor Information Center to allow the public to see what is happening at the museum. We hope everyone will be pleased to see the changes that have been made, the new services that are being offered, and the pride we hope to continue to develop in this special town called Hope. Come join us on the 20th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Yellow Trail Museum, at 644 Main Street, Hope.
