William Hillcourt Scout Museum Interior - CanoeThe facility now displays 2500 square feet of Scouting Memorabilia for everyone to enjoy. A Re-dedication Ceremony was held in October of 2007, several Family members from the Hillcourt and Buck Families were in attendance along with about 100 other supporters.

It was an excellent event, everyone gathered in Stickley Hall for a Reception with punch, cake and finger food and had the chance to see some old friends and share in some fellowship. The group then went to the New Museum building for the Ribbon Cutting. When everyone was inside we held a Ceremony that began by recapping the Museum from it’s inception back in 1992 (in an old Storage Room) to the facility that it is today.

We moved in the following weekend and have been busy re-assembling and designing displays ever since. It’s been a labor of love for many of us, it now allows us to display many more items and scouting themes of pieces that we have had in storage.
