We are happy to announce that we have received a mini-grant from the Wisconsin Historical Society in the amount of $500. This is a matching grant so we have to raise an additional $500 in order to receive the grant. The money will be used to purchase archival sleeves for the safe storing of photographic prints in the Ritzman collection so they are available for viewing. Right now the prints are stored in numerous boxes that are not favorable to good photographic preservation.
Your help is needed to raise the additional $500 for the archival sleeves. You may send your contributions to Lake States Railway Historical Association, 330 Lynn Street, Baraboo, WI 53913. Mark your donation "Ritzman project". Any contribution is gratefully appreciated.

A hot summer this year, progress is continuing, however, with drawing files. The IT team is continuing to process the web files, hopefully the CRIP & CMStP files will be available on line soon! Cataloging continues and a 'new' collection is being entered. Please be patient as much work is needed to get the drawings cataloged, entered into Excel files, proof read and then configured to the web site! Become a member of Lake States Railway Historical Association, Inc. and help support the preservation of railroad history. It takes money to preserve the many documents, photos and other ephemera so that modelers, historians, authors and others interested in early railroading can access what we have in our archives.
As a member you will receive our quarterly news letters and first hand information as to what is happening at LSRHA.
