Saving Our Roots

We need your help!

After the unexpected loss of Bob Hansen, the Historical Society began the daunting process of looking for a new location to house the museum. Thanks to the great efforts of the board, the Historical Society moved into their new building in 2022 at 300 E Locust St in Union under a purchase agreement. 

Our goal is to raise $400,000 to purchase our building. 100% of the funds are used to support the museum. We have no paid positions, as many museums do. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that survives completely on donations and the support of our community. So we are requesting YOUR support during this time. We will need to continue to raise the funds under this campaign to pay for it and it be our forever home.

If you are looking for an end-of-the-year tax deduction, please consider donating to allow us to continue to provide a free public museum that offers educational programs, and is a holding place for the history of the people and places in Franklin County.

Our mailing address is

PO Box 293, Union MO 63084


Thank you for your ongoing support!
