Renovation of an existing building into a state-of-the-art museum facility.

After many years of planning, the Marquette County History Museum purchased an existing building in downtown Marquette, Michigan, with plans to renovate it into a state-of-the-art facility. Features of the new facility include a large reception area, outdoor green space, children's classroom, increased artifact storage and exhibit space, and accessibility to users of all ages and abilities. This move will allow for expansion of the current humanities programming, giving this rural community opportunities to explore and reinforce a regional cultural identity. The goal is to establish a compelling visible presence in the community where humanities-based programming will take place.
