New Museum May Close

Back in February the Shawnee Dispatch ran an article about the new Medicine’s Hall of Fame & Museum located in western Shawnee in the former Harley Davidson dealership.

The article is quite interesting and can be read here

It has now come to my attention that the museum may close because of its inability to obtain a tax exemption.  I'm not familiar with this subject, but I thought that museums did get special consideration with regards to taxes.

Anybody want to jump on this and check it out?  You could check with Dr. Bruce Hodges and/or his wife Cathy at the museum, 6801 Hedge Lane Terrace, telephone 913-888-0777.  BTW, that's  near the southwest corner of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Kansas Highway 7.
