Our History


 FoBP’s mission is to preserve the legacy  of the once famous “Benson’s Wild Animal Farm” by renovating the  Elephant Barn at Benson Park, into a museum which will house memorabilia  and provide educational opportunities to the community. FoBP will  accomplish this mission through volunteerism, fundraising, and the  promotion of Benson Park.
