Join us for our Museum Service Project! We will be assisting Annie Bommer of the Layton Heritage Museum with cleaning up their collection. Annie’s predecessor intermixed archival materials with research collections and she needs our help with sorting it and doing a basic index of the collection. This will help them further their goal of getting this information online so it can be available to researchers. Their are so excited we are coming to help them! We hope to see everyone there!
What is the Heritage Museum? The Heritage Museum’s mission statement is “The Heritage Museum of Layton strives to facilitate educational experiences based on the history, people, and culture of Northern Davis County.” The museum first got its start in 1972 when a group of citizens met to discuss the possibility of a historical museum in Layton. By 1976 ground was broken and construction began on the two acres of land given to the museum by the city of Layton. The Museum opened to the public on October 10, 1981 and the Museum and its artifacts were given as a gift to Layton City from the Pioneer Museum of Layton. In 1983, the nonprofit was renamed to the Heritage Museum of Layton. For more information please click here to go to their website.
Who is Annie Bommer? Annie is the director of the museum and has been there since August 2020. She says” I rely heavily on my volunteers to both help me with projects and keep me sane. Projects that I have worked on since I began are adding new exhibits and continually swapping out items to keep the museum interesting, adding children’s activities, creating educational programming, and creating family events.” Visit her LinkedIn for more information.
