Adobe House Museum Fund

The David F. Wiebe Memorial Fund for Hillsboro Pioneer Adobe House and Museum was established in 2012 by David’s brother, Raymond Wiebe.  Earnings from the fund are used for museum exhibits, operating costs, and other projects recommended by the Hillsboro Museums Board.

Although David taught high school in several towns around Kansas throughout his life, he came back to Hillsboro each summer to work in the museum.  From 1984 to 2002, he served as the Director of Museums for the City of Hillsboro.

The purpose of the endowed fund is to help ensure the future of the Adobe House Museum and preserve the history of the Mennonite culture.  As an open fund, additional contributions may be made by anyone with an interest in reminding us of our heritage.
