President

Kriss Bottino

Our non-profit started out with the dream of creating a museum to honor a small eastern Washington town and provide a public space for young and old alike to gather. We have furthered that mission by creating a food bank to serve area residents, acquiring, listing (state and national registers), and working to preserve a 1901 Boomtown False Front building - one of the last remaining in Adams County. We also created a space for creative freedom with our graffiti bus/art park project that we are excited to move forward.
