More details on how you, your family, or your business can be involved in this exciting project are coming soon!
Become a challenge coin member and support the LARGEST expansion project in Boot Hill Museum history!
The limited edition coins are numbered, and feature the “A Better Boot Hill” campaign logo of the new building on the front of the coin and the world-famous Boot Hill gunfighter on the back. The challenge coin is an age old tradition that was created within the military to prove membership and allegiance to a unit.
Boot Hill Museum will begin construction of a new exhibit building in the fall of 2018. The building, made possible through STAR bonds, will feature eight new exhibits, a gift shop, lobby, and pavilion that travelers and locals will enjoy visiting. This will position the museum to better the story of Dodge City and the Old West additional space. While the construction of the new building exterior relies on funding from STAR bonds, the museum will be responsible for costs associated with the interior space. Boot Hill Museum is launching the “A Better Boot Hill” capital campaign to raise funds for this massive project, with a goal of $1.3 million to meet over the next few years.
There are many benefits from this expansion for Dodge City and the Southwest Kansas area. The addition is projected to double the museum’s attendance each year and increase tourism, thus producing economic growth and quality of life. This expansion will also help with the preserving of American Western history. The current display space at the museum is at capacity and many artifacts have had to be housed in storage because of the lack of room.
Proudly carry your special “A Better Boot Hill” Fast-Draw Challenge Coin wherever you go to show others how important the new exhibits building is and your loyalty to the Boot Hill Museum.
