If you wish to Donate, please contact us at


We have had individuals and businesses support us with donations from very early in the process of raising a new Museum from the ground up!

 Major contributors include:  members of the Coe Family, Bill Garlow, Wilder Enterprises, Fran & Lenox Baker, Mick Barrus, Robert Model, Ed & Nancy Webster, Howard & Ginger Dager.

Over the past 10 years, the Board has held numerous fundraisers and campaigns, including movie nights, BarJ Wranglers concerts, a Capitol Fund Campaign in 2016, and the Celebrating Cody Heritage event in April 2017.

Starting in 2011, the group of dedicated community volunteers, organized and carried out a hugely successful event as a major fundraiser for the Museum:  The Field of Honor.  The board cannot adequately express their appreciation for all the efforts of this group to help support the growth and establishment of our local history museum.

NOTE:  The Field of Honor will be flying again in June of 2018!!  See our page on this website and watch the paper and radio for coverage of this year's event!!

The Fran & Lenox Baker Endowment

A major contribution during our 2016 Capitol Fund Campaign was a gift of $100,000 to provide an endowment to insure the Museum's future.  Our enduring thanks go to Fran and Lenox Baker, great lovers of Park County history, for their generous gift.
