CHOM was started in 2017 with traveling exhibits at fairs, schools, and community events.   In 2019 we moved into 2 store fronts in the Lincoln Mall.   The mall allowed us to cut a hole in the wall between the stores, community members painted, volunteers built structures, and with the help of generous donations we opened in February, 2019 with over 10 unique exhibit areas.   Today we are a total volunteer organization with tremendous community support.  We hope to see you soon.
