P-9, 6 Juna 18 19Q8 Ouad City. Herald Museum planned t, preserve Mansfield history A group of present and former Mansfield residents have began a project to turn the former post office-bank building into a museum. The organizers of the museum project want to "preserve something of the history of Mansfield and the surrounding area," said Daroid Wax, Wenatchee, president of the recently established Mansfield Museum Society. Wax and his wife were raised in Mansfield, he said. The building is located at the corner of First and Main streets, constructed of mellow red brick with big plate glass windows and doors. "When I was growing up in Mansfield, it was the post office," Wax said. It was owned by Alex McLean: the city of Mansfield purchased it for $3,000 in May. Eventually ownership will be assumed by the museum society. Members of the museum society toured the building last weekend. Its roof was replaced a few years ago. The floors are in poor repair, however, and the electrical wiring will need to be replaced, Wax said; the interior will need extensive refurbishment. Repairing the building and acquiring a collection will be long term, multi-year undertakings, Wax said. Museum society members want to enlist the aid of Mansfield residents, past and present, and their resources--expertise, labor, materials, objecls for display. He saidpeople have expressed interest in the project. "That latent support is out there." Society members also are applying for grants to help pay for part of the project; "we've got to get our hands on some money." Wax recently returned to the area after retiring from a 33 year career as a professor ofnerican history at Oregon State University. He said he hopes the museum will "tell something of the story of Mansfield" rather than be a collection of interesting but unrelated objects. A unifying theme is a good way to make the museum more interesting and memorable, he said.
