Artist Linda David Collection
Artist Linda David will donate a portion of her sales from selected pen-and-ink drawings to the Museum. Her drawings, based on photographs from the Museum's collections and related research, include memorable historic buildings in and around Excelsior Springs -- the Chadwick, the Elms, the Milwaukee Depot, the Hall of Waters, and more. You may view and purchase her artworks through the link below.

Best Choice Labels
The museum has an ongoing project in which anyone can participate. Clip the UPC bar codes from Best Choice brand products and bring them to the museum. For every 1000 collected and sent in to Best Choice, the museum will receive a check for $30.00. You can find Best Choice products at Price Chopper and other retail stores. You can save money and help the museum!

For years, dedicated patrons have collected Best Choice product labels. Many thanks to Edith Tarepin for coming up with this idea.
