White Pine Public Museum
Over the spring and summer of 2016, the White Pine Public Museum embarked on a strategic planning initiative to ensure the organization’s future in preserving and interpreting the natural and cultural history of White Pine County at its museum in Ely, Nevada, and its historic drugstore in McGill, Nevada.
With funding and administrative support from the Great Basin Heritage Area Partnership, White Pine Public Museum hired museum specialist Art Wolf to facilitate the critical stages of strategic planning. Throughout the process, the museum’s role in education was emphasized as critical, as was its role in the community. The Heritage Area has also funded other projects at the museum such as a new map frame, website upgrade, and furnishings for hosting educational events.
