The Griggs County Musesum received a $1,500 grant from the North Dakota State Historical Society in September of 2011.
This enabled us to purchase several hundred boxes of various sizes for documents, clothing, records and artifacts. These boxes are acid free, very well sealed to keep out dust and limit the amount of humidity variation.
A summer project will establish new shelving system and they will be entered into the ongoing catalog system.
You can check out the contents of the first few boxes by clicking on this archives link.
You can search for box contents by entering words into the search tool.
For example, if you enter Sverdrup Township Records, it will show their location in boxes 213, 214 and 215.
Stop by and check it out. We can always use some good advice and volunteer help.
