1. VanTrees Donation Marker
Inscription.  
In 1990 the old Equity Dairy property adjacent to
the museum was purchased with the VanTrees
donation. With the support of a community united
to make its 1991 bicentennial year one not to be
forgotten, the VanTrees Park not only became a
reality but exceeded expectations. With continued
donations the park is now host to summer evening
performances in the Hein Amphitheater and many
special community events.
