This summer the Museum will be unveiling a new addition to the Silver Gate exhibit, a replica of the town as it looked in circa 1937. The building replicas are being created by Precision Images/Precision Scale Models near Seattle in Northwest Washington. The landscape is being made here at the Museum.
