History title
The Travel Town Museum is a great venue for both Boy Scout Eagle Projects and Girl Scout Gold Award Projects. Through these community-service projects, individual Boy and Girl Scouts are able to demonstrate their leadership abilities while doing a "good turn" for the Museum and its visitors. The projects fulfill an important achievement required for the scout to advance and attain either the rank of Eagle within the Boy Scouts of America or the Gold Award within the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. These prestigious awards represent the highest honors of achievement in the scouting programs.

Each leadership project requires that the scout plan, organize, fundraise and execute a community service project. These projects are wonderful win-win situations for both the scouts and the Museum - providing great impetus for progress in the Museum's historic preservation and education efforts! Below is a list of the recent Scout Leadership Projects at Travel Town.
