Preserving regional history and culture is at the heart of the Sparks Museum and Cultural Center. To enable us to fulfill this mission we are dependent on membership fees, grants and donations. The funds contributed through membership fees enable us to keep our doors open and allows us to create opportunities for entertainment and learning through educational programs and exhibits, and sustain our community’s heritage through the preservation and care of our historic artifacts and photographs.
