Laird Museum Closing In Waupun

The Waupun Historical Society this week voted to close the James C. Laird Museum. The decision stemmed from high operating expenses and the inability to generate enough revenue. Historical Society President Jay Graff says he appreciates the hard work from volunteers and community supporters over the years. Many of the exhibits will be cataloged and put into storage. Graff says he anticipates the property will be sold to the highest bidder by the end of the year. He says they will continue to improve their exhibits at the Carnegie Library at 22 South Madison Street.
