The Dolan-Justice Memorial Museum opened its doors to the public with a grand opening this past weekend.
The new structure was built through a donation from the late Phyllis and Clarence Justice and is the property of the Grant County Historical Society. It is located on the same lot as the old Carnegie Library.
The museum traces the history of life in Grant County through the history of the Grant County Review newspaper. An added section of the museum is devoted to Leo Flynn, former Milbank attorney.
Construction of the new museum began in 2014 with Calvin Schulte of Extreme Contracting as the general contractor. The building took shape in January of 2015 when rafters and walls were built. Other crews providing work on the project were Tom Pillatzki, cement; Jim Berkner, dirt; Calvin Peterson, plumbing; Jim Andrews, electrical; Gary Frederickson, HVAC; Eric Miller, tape, texture and paint; Dewey Athey, landscaping, and Scott Leininger, interior work.
The museum is now open Sundays from 2-5 pm through Labor Day. The museum is handicap accessible and includes restrooms.
