This is a new museum and will grow over time.   We can't do everything at once so we will be selecting a few topics (or themes) to focus on for the first exhibits.   Possible topics include Marseilles railroad history, Nabisco factory, Marseilles businesses, river/canal, bridge and lock construction, Marseilles residents in World War I and II, ....   

Right now we are looking for ideas and suggestions on which topics to work on next.    Use the form below to give us your ideas. ​
