I'm not finding anything other than local coverage of upcoming events and an act of vandalism, so WP:GNG is not satisfied. Clarityfiend (talk) 05:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment Most of the coverage just calls it "Bonanzaville", so searching on "Bonanzaville, USA" gives misleadingly few results. I'm not sure it rises to the level of notability in Wikipedia terms, but the coverage isn't as sparse as it appears at first glance. ‑ Iridescent 12:24, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep on the strength of this international coverage. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 12:28, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Local-history museums tend to get a surprising amount of coverage in print and other not-easily-found-with-Google sources, and they're quite often notable. Nyttend (talk) 23:04, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep. I was correct: there's a significant amount of coverage in print resources, as you'll see if you search WorldCat for bonanzaville. Many of the top resources are irrelevant, being publications by Bonanzaville (e.g. a cookbook and some children's texts), and OCLC 807200662 is a printout of Wikipedia articles, but OCLC 124035705 (from a significant publisher in American local history) has enough coverage of Bonanzaville that it appears in the WorldCat record. According to this archival record from NDSU, the Fargo-Moorhead Historic Buildings Survey produced significant documentation on at least one of the buildings on site (this will be a reliable sources with extensive information on the building), and I'd be quite surprised if such a survey missed all the other buildings here. OCLC 38873053 discusses using Bonanzaville's resources in social studies classes; it was written by college students, but as the project was overseen by education faculty and published by their department of education, I'd consider it a reliable source for this topic. And finally, there are two separate graduate theses focusing on Bonanzaville in particular. OCLC 127449324 is a case study of communication at this museum, and OCLC 23350797 focuses on the process of creating and moving the museum. (Its OCLC record doesn't give much metadata; I know it's a thesis after consulting its record in the NDSU library catalogue.) Nyttend (talk) 23:32, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep -- The current sources are RS. I would congratulate the Cass County Hist Soc for creating this 12-acre museum. Museums tend to be tourist attractions and notable as such. Peterkingiron (talk) 15:03, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Not seeing independent in-depth coverage in reliable sources, either those in the article or elsewhere online - lack of WP:SIGCOV. Fails WP:GNG. Promotional article. Edwardx (talk) 00:05, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Museums and libraries Proposed Deletions

I am one of the student workers at Illinois College who is editing The Paul Findley Congressional Office Museum. The student before me did not do a good job, so I am now editing the page and adding sources. However, I only work on fridays for 2 hours. I ask that you please allow us to continue to make the page better and not delete the page. Bran890 (talk) 16:46, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
