Dear BMHS Museum Supporters:
It is with great sorrow to let you know that the Bergland/Matchwood Historical Society has lost the use of the buildings at the Forest Service Complex in Bergland. The Forest Service has decided that they no longer want to have the property the Bergland School District had deeded to them in the 1930's. Originally the land was donated to the Bergland School District by Bergland's founder Gunlach Bergland. The property has to revert back to the Bergland School district which was taken over by the Ewen-Trout Creek School District back in the 1980's.
We have to vacate the buildings by removing all of the museum's items before they can return this property to the E-TC School district. At this time, we have no alternative building to move to. We are encouraging the school district to give it back to Bergland Township where it belongs.
You are receiving this notice because if you have loaned the museum items to be displayed in the buildings, please make arrangements for pick up by contacting:
President Gloria Johnson, Phone: 906-575-3312

we appreciate you loaning them to us to show them to the public.
