Around 1920, the school was moved to its present location from its original property south of Jones Creek, on Foster Farms. The 110-year old school has been restored as closely as possible to its original state through the use of old photographs and from the input of former students who still reside in the community.
Friends of Foster Community ~ $100
Patrons of Foster Community ~ $250
Family of Foster Community ~ $500
Lifetime Membership ~ $1000
In-kind donations are always welcome!
Welcome to 2016!
Another exciting year is planned. 2016 proved to be very successful as the Museum had a land plan developed which will earmark all future developements. The Memorial Garden saw groundbreaking in November and the first set of family donated trees were planted. The Member/Donor Social in January kicks off the year along with an Oral History Fair for Foster and the surrounding community. The Museum will host its one "Big Event" fundraiser in August. The theme differs each year, but holds with the Museum's purpose of "Bringing the Past into the Present".
