Weston Historical Museum
Exhibits feature displays depicting life in Platte County from prehistoric days through World War II,
including household items, tools, glassware and china, furniture, historic documents and everyday
items of the past.
The museum was founded through the efforts of many Weston citizens and the tireless leadership of
Bertha Bless and Dr. R.J. Felling.
Marian Gaskill served as the president of the museum for more than 30 years. She was President
Emeritus until her death in 2010.
Diza Eskridge served as the president of the Board until July, 2010. Carl Felling, the son of one of the
founders, Dr. Felling, is currently the president. Carolyn Bless Larsen, the curator is the daughter of the
second co-founder of the museum. They both work closely with the Director, Barb Fulk, to continue the
legacy of the many early volunteers so that Weston's fascinating history will live on.
A Museum Board of Trustees and Museum Officers support the volunteers and part time staff in their
unending commitment to preserve the area's history and welcome visitors.
The Museum offers a variety of Mini-Tours for groups of 15 or more, with advance arrangements. For
