The Island Museum of History and Industry (MHI) will be an interactive educational facility located on the grounds of the San Juan Historical Museum. It will be housed in the barn, which was rebuilt in classic Island style. MHI will focus on the core industries that built this island: Fishing – Farming – Logging – Lime. The goal of MHI is to focus many of the museum’s artifacts into a reflection of the industries and the people who were involved.

We need YOU! The building of the MHI building will take about two years. Volunteers are needed at every step along the way: research, construction, fundraising, representation at community events, material gathering, volunteer coordination, and so much more. Join us!
