Happy Independence Day Falter Fans!

It was an incredibly busy June as the Museum welcomed 275 guests bringing the total number of visitors to 500 for the first two months of the Nebraska Passport Program. Additionally, we had over 250 participants who got received a digital stamp. In just two short months, the program has brought nearly 1,000 people to Falls City! We could not be more excited for the rest of the program, which runs through September.

Jessica Santo and her summer campers spent a day at the Falter Museum. It was an so fun to be able to share John’s talents with these young artists as they continue to learn and grow their interest in an area that was so important to John.

A special thanks to our June donors:

Marlen Luff
Norm & Sharon Honea Horn
Dr. Robert and Jo Neman.

"Family Portrait on the Fourth"

Adopted By: Dick & Mary Jane Gist

The family has reunited to celebrate their independence, and Mr. Smilenow is going to squeeze them all into one photograph or smother in the attempt. After everybody has looked unnaturally pleasant for a while, the camera professor, emerging from his shroud, will tell them to look pleasant, and their tired-out faces will collapse into shocking sun squints just as the camera snicks. Great-grandma is the smart one; in her mellow old wisdom she's thinking, I'll just save my gumption till he's ready, and then turn on a smile that'll make me the belle of the tintype. Let's ignore Uncle Gourmand on the stoop, and those exasperating boys, either one of whom may grow up to be President; and merely ask artist Falter: "Why isn't it raining?"
