The Japanese Hall / Legacy of the Plains Museum
The Japanese Hall, presently located on Avenue C in Scottsbluff, was constructed in 1928. For decades, this building was used for Japanese language classes, dances, festivals, theater productions, sports clubs, and church services.The Friendly Circle Bazaar was held at the building from the 1950’s through 2016 to help maintain the building. The Young Men’s Association and the Ian Kai also assisted in preserving the building. The owner has agreed to donate the building to the Legacy of the Plains Museum.
Funds are being raised to move this historic building here, restore it, and reopen the doors to show off new exhibits featuring collections from the Japanese community. This move would ensure that the building and heritage of the Japanese of the High Plains would be preserved and protected for future generations.
