About Us

Privacy Policy

We have suspended Wilkes Has Talent until sponsors can be found. It is through sponsorship that we are able to raise the money needed for the $1000.00 scholarship.

If you know of any person(s) or business that would like to sponsor Wilkes Has Talent, please encourage them to call the museum.
