Our HVAC system is over 40 years old and needs replacing to keep the museum in top shape!


raised by 32 people

$140,000 goal

Though it quietly hums in the background, barely noticed by visitors, the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum is critical to our operations. The HVAC serves as the respiratory system for the building, providing a comfortable, stable environment for our visitors and the tens of thousands of collections items being cared for by the Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS). These items tell the stories of the many people who have made this land their home over the centuries.

The Weyerhaeuser Museum opened in 1975, which is when most of its current HVAC system was put into use. The system is now well over 40 years old and has become inefficient by today's energy standards and costly to maintain. It needs to be replaced, which will mean removing the giant air handler and boilers and replacing them with high-efficiency gas furnaces. We’ll get new air conditioners and humidifiers as part of the project, too. The estimated cost for replacing the HVAC is $140,000.

We need your help to tackle this project. Our goal is to replace the HVAC - the lungs of the Weyerhaeuser Museum - in the spring of 2021. Your contribution is crucial to this project. 

Thank you for your support!
