2013 Big Bear Museum Of Native American History
06/01/13
Native American artifacts coming to Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum in Cleburne, Texas.

The Smithsonian wanted this collection, but Johnson County Heritage Foundation, who operates
the Outdoor Museum, found favor with the Big Bear Beal family and have been gifted this lifetime collection of historic artifacts.
Plans for a two thousand square foot Hogan style building have been drawn by designer Louis Speyer of Cleburne.
JCHF began a fund raising drive in December 2012 to raise $100,000+ for the construction and display of this unique structure.
Builder, Jack Wylie states that construction should begin in June 2013.
This “BIG BEAR” Museum will house one of the largest collections of Native American artifacts in this part of the country.
JCHF is an all volunteer 501 (c)(3) foundation and all donations are tax deductible. There will be a display in the museum with
the different levels of participation listing the names of the donors.
This will be the largest Native American museum in Texas and the only one in an outdoor setting. There is another one a mall in the Houston area.

FEMA: August 2013 Update: We are still being held up on construction of the museum by a change
in the FEMA Flood Map. We are currently awaiting a LOMA (Letter of Map Adjustment) and/or a Structural Engineer's Stamp.
The initial fund raising goal has been pledged or given. It looks like the FEMA regulations will cause the cost of the building to increase as much as 50%.
We should know something one way or the other this month.
