STURGIS — The Sturgis Station House Museum welcomed guests to its opening day tea on the museum grounds on June 8. Guests were treated to tea and an assortment of fancy treats, and welcomed to tour the museum,

The museum officially opened on the May 21 long weekend; and welcomed Stacey Wiebe as curator, Danika Soltys as student curator assistant, and Tate Bayer as student maintenance responsible for the upkeep of the grounds.

“The main goal we want to focus on is redoing the General Store room. The outdoor Agricultural Building structure is up but needs to have all the interior work completed,” said Wiebe.

The Sturgis Station House Museum strives to collect artifacts and archival materials of historical or cultural significance which hold documentary evidence, past and present, of the people and their activities in the development and ongoing story of the community of Sturgis and surrounding area. The museum strives to describe, interpret and communicate through exhibition, display, programming or research opportunities, those items for the education, study and enjoyment of all members of the general public; and to properly care for and preserve all items held in its trust, for present and future generations, stated the museum’s website.
