Mission:
To discover, preserve, interpret and celebrate the history of Welsh immigrants on the prairies of North America, in order to document this small but important group's contribution to American diversity.
Results:
We have a theatre where Welsh movies (with subtitles) can be shown, a garden area enhanced by an 80 foot long mural depicting the emigration from Wales to the Midwest, a library that, when fully cataloged, will contain over a thousand volumes pertaining to Wales and Welsh America, and an archive of Welsh American organizations' records. We have the only known copy of Y Drych, the Welsh American newspaper, 1851-1999, and we do extensive family history research for people studying their Welsh ancestry.
