Columbus Chapel & Boal Mansion Museum

The mission of the Columbus Chapel & Boal Mansion Museum is to preserve the 225-year-old Boal Estate, its buildings, collections, and grounds as a creative site to promote historical education, performing arts, and environmental stewardship.

The Museum’s goals are:

  • Put in place the organizational and financial structures that will help us to achieve our mission.

  • Provide an extraordinary guest experience—enhance communication strategies, create world-class facilities, and train staff.

  • Take a curatorial approach to managing the Estate—communicate its legacy, catalog its historic collection, and engage and inspire new audiences.

  • Serve as a leader in environmental stewardship—commit to conservation and sustainable practices, promote educational programs, and foster a culture of sustainability. 

  • Enhance existing educational programs and share intellectual capital—expand educational programs, develop and disseminate new knowledge, and partner with other institutions.
