Citizen Potawatomi Nation donated two re-purposed desktops computers and a scanner to the Santa Fe Depot Museum in Shawnee. The Pottawatomie County Oklahoma Historical Society reached out to CPN to see if they had any computers available for a project they will be overseeing at the Santa Fe Depot Museum.
“We plan on using one of the computers and the scanner to scan in documents and photos to preserve the history of Pottawatomie County,” said Landry. “The other computer will be used for patrons visiting the museum to click through the images that we’ve scanned in to make it easier for them to research our past.”
The Pottawatomie County Oklahoma Historical Society was created in 1926 in Shawnee. Still in operation today, the group works out of the Santa Fe Depot Museum and has open enrollment to anyone who would like to join. For more information, refer to their Facebook page.
“We are so thankful for the donation that CPN gave to us,” added Landry. “We can’t wait to get the computers set up for people who visit the museum to start using and discovering Pottawatomie County history.”
