Exhibit Opening Postponed

Updated 05/20/18 – The power was back on as of yesterday afternoon, so our Revolutionary War exhibit opening and 50th birthday party will be this coming Saturday, May 26th at 10:00AM. We’ll see you then!


As many, if not all of you are aware, this past week a rather damaging storm passed through the area. While our schoolhouse thankfully did not take a direct hit, many homes and properties in the surrounding area did. While cleanup efforts continue and power gets restored, we will be postponing our exhibit opening and 50th birthday party scheduled for May 19th and the museum is temporarily closed.

The above pictures are of our side and back yard/garden area. The tree just missed the schoolhouse. A nuisance, but nothing that can’t be cleaned up. Running past the white fence and parallel to the tree is Church Road, a little ways up from where Governor¬† Cuomo held his press conference the other day.

Unfortunately, our town has become quite familiar with damaging storms in 2018. While the storm on Tuesday didn’t have the devastating impact on the community that the storms in March did, it is still an event that will be recalled years from now when friends and neighbors gather around and “remember when”, sharing pictures and stories. We’re living through some historic times in our town, folks.

We will announce the new opening date for the exhibit in the next few days.

Our American History – Gettysburg

Please note the 1:00PM start time for this one!! Still at the library.

Gettysburg

Our next lecture is fast approaching! While last month we enjoyed looking back at a fun time in our past, enjoying the thrill and excitement of an amusement park, this month we look back at a time when our county was severely divided and suffered it’s bloodiest battle during the Civil War. One of the more effective ways of reaching later generations, historical reenactments, movies, and documentaries about the Civil War let us experience a small portion of what was happening in the 1860s.
