It has been roughly five months since the Boundary County Museum has shuttered its doors to the community, due to the Coronavirus. With little time to formulate long-term plans, and no expectation that the shutdown would stretch this long, the Board of Trustees agreed at a recent meeting that in all good faith, considering the health and safety of everyone involved (staff, volunteers, and the public), the doors will remain closed until the current virus threat has subsided.

A limited crew is on hand at the Museum to monitor the collections, provide security, answer inquiries by phone or email, and continue on-going research. The 2021 Historical Calendar is underway, and will be available for sale in the future.

At this time, the Board does not anticipate any of the Museum’s usual programs, history walks, class reunions, or cemetery tours which usually take place during summer and fall. A final decision has not been made to date on the annual “Night for the Museum” dinner and fundraiser usually held in October.

The Board asks for the community’s continued support of the Museum during this time, and regrets the inconvenience to everyone due to the closure. Once it is safe to do so, the doors will open and all will be welcomed back to your Museum.

    I am looking for more information on a steel plated tug boat that Ralph clapp operated in the 1920’s. How it sank?

    Good Afternoon,
    The Museum archives has quite a bit of information on Ralph Clapp, even a couple photos of his boats.
    We will email you.

    Thank you for understanding
