Greensburg’s Big Well to get new museum

September 20, 2011


— Four years after it was destroyed by a tornado, construction for a bigger and better Big Well Museum is beginning in Greensburg.

A groundbreaking ceremony was conducted Monday morning. Greensburg officials hope to have the new museum open by May 2012.

The new museum will include exhibits on Greensburg’s history, including the digging of the Big Well, the May 4, 2007, tornado that destroyed the museum and most of Greensburg, and rebuilding the town.

Before the tornado, tourists often stopped in Greensburg to see a well that is among the world’s largest hand-dug wells.
