Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, History Museums

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.

Target demographics: Descendants of Welsh American immigrants, and the public with an interest in the history of immigration and settlement of the prairies.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 950 visitors per year; annual visits of 4th grade students to our restored schoolhouse.

Geographic areas served: North American prairies states and provinces; all of North America; Wales

Programs: Welsh American Family history research, regular columns in Welsh American publications, Ninnau and WAGS ; observation of Welsh American Heroes.
