Pritzker Archives & cemetery Center
The PAMPC was created out of a requirement for extra space to deal with a number of the circulating book collection and therefore the archival collections of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library and can be completed in phases over an estimated ten years.
The first phase of the project will include the Pritzker Military Archives Center to deal with the collections and supply workspace for the continued curation for future exhibits; Commercial Archives supported demand where private collectors, public institutions, et al. may store their archives; the Midwest Firearms Education & Training Center; a Community Green Space expertly landscaped with walking and biking paths; and therefore the conflict Veterans Memorial.
