The Future

The history of the Bingham-Waggoner Estate is indeed rich.  Very few places can relate stories of their significant contributions to the growth of art, politics, architecture, economics and culture.  It is important to the Bingham-Waggoner Historical Society that these stories and experiences be kept alive for future generations. 

To accomplish this, much planning and implementation is required.

Long-range plans have been developed for the estate.  They include:

  • Infrastructure improvements to the main house.
  • Renovation of other outbuildings
  • Continued research and cataloging of artifacts.

In order to accomplish our goals we host several fundraisers annually.  In addition to supporting our fundraisers, we invite you to become a member of the Bingham-Waggoner Historical Society.  The benefits are:


  • Free admission into the Mansion

  • Sodas on Sunday - A members only event
  • The good feeling you get knowing you are keeping a bit of history alive and well for generations to come
