Museum Groundbreaking

Description: Photograph of a group of people standing in a row around a small model structure in Danevang, Texas. The model has a red roof and bears the Danish flag on the side wall. A sign to the right of the group of people reads, "future home of Danevang Heritage Society Museum" followed by an address for inquiries. A building in the rightmost part of the image has been mostly cropped out, but some of its architectural details can be seen, like its white siding and shingled inclined roof. Although names have been provided, they have not been matched to the individuals pictured, with the exception of Elaine Wind, who holds a folded blueprint in the front row. This is further clarified by the typed note on the back of the photograph which reads, "Well these great people stand around this great model with blueprints in hand of Elaine Wind The model of this great building is what we have here today what a great investment we have Put back into the community ----Although we run off of donations we have some great people Who help keep us afloat by the grace of God [sic]."
