Roarin’ into a New Decade
As we embark on a new decade, we look to the future with great anticipation and excitement, much like the generation who “Charlestoned” their way into 1920 after a World War was settled and patriots returned home to experience a greater prosperity and standard of living that was unparalleled across the world. Astounding inventions (like the automobile and the telephone) became easily accessible to the average person and medical discoveries improved lives. The future was a bright pathway for all to achieve its promises.
A century later, the Belton Area Museum Association builds upon the past and that sense of discovery, hosting activities such as Heritage Days at the Depot, interesting and engaging programming, and awe-inspiring exhibits. Over the last 15 years, we have become a destination for visitors, a source of family-gathering genealogical information, a community-centered place where multi-generational patrons share activities and experiences together.
Unlike the resulting economic failures of the “no-cares-for-tomorrow” generation, we have learned from the past to be good stewards, to save a little for a rainy day. BAMA works within its budget to produce outstanding events and activities for our community and to continue the preservation of our culture and heritage.
But we also covet your memberships, your rentals, your donations, and your sponsorships that bring all these programs and exhibits free of charge to our community. We need all of you!
