We currently have a Schwan's fundraising campaign in progress. You may place orders until 6/8/13 using the campaign code #42553 and a sizeable percent of your order total will be donated to the Saunders County Historical Society and Museum.
This is especially easy if you order gift cards for yourself or others--you receive the total benefit for your dollars purchased and the SCHS also benefits. SCHS will benefit for all orders placed using the campaign code # 42553.

The Saunders County Museum is a tribute to the pioneers who sought a better life on the prairie. Early settlers were predominantly Czech, Germans and Swedes drawn to Saunders County for the opportunity to own a piece of land. Railroads helped development and towns flourished along their lines.
