Men & Women of the Land-Hall of Honor

“Each man of the land comes and has his time.  He lives and loves and laughs, and walks the land, and calls it his.  After a time, one way or another, the man leaves.  The land remains.”

 Dorothy Darling Wagner

from “The Man of the Land” 1978


The Stevens County Museum is housed in the historic Carnegie library building, on the register of National Historic Sites.  The Hall of Honor area is located in our board meeting/conference room.

It is fitting that it be named after men and women who have contributed and continue to contribute in some manner to what we collectively value as Stevens County history.

  • It may be someone who has gained worldwide fame or recognition.
  • It may be someone who has influenced youth through education and example.
  • It may be someone who contributes through their talents and skills.
  • It may be someone who quietly and humbly raises their family and practices good citizenship.
  • It may be someone who provides goods and services.

With a $5,000 donation, which can come from an individual, a group of people, or an organization, the heritage of the person of your choosing, past or present will become a part of our “Men and Women of the Land” Hall of Honor.  Please give thoughtful consideration to donating and nominating someone to the Hall of Honor.

Together we will preserve their history.
