OUR MISSION

The Saratoga Historical and Cultural Association (SHCA) seeks to deepen understanding and engagement of the historic, prehistoric, geological, and cultural past up to the present of the town of Saratoga and its relevant place in Platte Valley, Carbon County, and the state of Wyoming; strengthen the bonds of the local community; and provide an educational, stimulating and positive experience for museum visitors.

 

HOW WE ARE FUNDED

The Saratoga Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and operates independently, relying on Museum members, volunteers and private funding to support its vision.

In addition to a one mill levy tax, the Saratoga Museum preserves our rich heritage and history with donations, memberships and grants through the Wyoming Community Foundation and the Carbon County Visitors Council.

 

We would like to thank everyone who supports us!
