Hope museum adding first museum manager

The Yellow Trail Museum in Hope is adding its first full time museum manager.

The not for profit museum features history displays and artifacts from the town’s earliest days. It also operates a branch of the Columbus Area Visitors Center.

The museum’s board of directors announced this week that they have hired Lizzie Flora for the role. She is a graduate of the University of Evansville with a degree in archaeology and art history. Most recently she worked at the Indiana State Museum.

Board president Erin Anderson says that Flora will be taking care of daily operations, developing exhibits and programs, cataloging the museum’s collection and ensuring proper preservation of the materials.
