Our Mission

The Bingham-Waggoner Historical Society is organized for the preservation and interpretation of this site. Its focus is to increase the understanding of the history of the Queen City of the Trails, as well as, to be an economic asset to tourism industry, generating interest and dollars while at the same time preserving its special identity.

The dedication and hard work of the members has culminated in a beautifully preserved home.  Over the years, we have cleaned, polished and preserved the buildings and Waggoner Family possessions to bring them back to their original splendor.  We have delighted in watching the transformation and look forward to sharing the experience of  returning to the 1890's with you.

Please feel welcome to contact us if you have any questions, interest in joining our group, or would like to contribute to our activities.
