We have delayed our opening 3 weeks but after our recent board meeting the decision to open with a few restriction due to Covid-19.


1.  Please do not visit the museum with any sickness or illness.

2. Visitors are encouraged to wear masks. They protect you and others.

3. Hand sanitizer is available when entering and existing. Please use it.

4. Social distance should not be a problem. Please stay six feet away from other visitors and staff.

5. Restrooms are available only for emergencies.

Please Enjoy Your Visit!

The Jankoskis are extraordinary volunteers all over Stanley. President Dave has been mayor of the city for many years and, after a short pause and a write-in on the city council ballot, he continues to serve.

Curator of the museum for many years, Betty Plombon shows off the new newsletter format using a bar code for the mailings, something that she struggled hours to get right and thus making the sending easier. We have more than 600 members who receive copies of the museum's events and non-fiction nostalgia of folks who remembered life in the Stanley area.

Welcome to the Museum Website!

As president of the Stanley Area Historical Society I want to welcome you to our updated Website. Our organization is extremely proud its accomplishments since we were incorporated over 37 years ago. We have grown over the years in the size of our exhibit space and in the number of artifacts that our museum contains. We want to invite and encourage you to visit us during the months of June, July and August on Saturdays and Sundays 1-4 p.m. and in September on Sundays 1-4 p.m. Or groups wishing to visit can also call for an appointment. We guarantee you will be surprised at what we have in our over 10,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space. We await your visit.

David Jankoski President
