GIVE TO THE MIMI HARDMAN COLLECTIONS AND RESEARCH CENTER CAMPAIGN

The Lake Wales History Museum announces a $125,000 fundraising campaign to create the new Mimi Hardman Collections and Research Center. This project will transition the museum’s collection into permanent storage and rehabilitate the historic 1916 Seaboard Airline Freight Station.  Dedicated to the museum’s founder, Mimi Hardman, this new center will allow for the growth and proper care of the museum’s 44-year-old collection, future research and public access to the more than 25,000 items of Lake Wales’ historical items dating back to the 1850s.
