Tooling Up


A volunteer documenting old tools.

You may not know it, but beneath the museum is a basement of treasures that include many old tools that are being catalogued and identified. They have accession numbers so that they can be tracked and found when needed for research and conservation.

A volunteer is kindly helping to identify and document some of the old tools we have.
Volunteers are an important part of the museum’s operations and are always welcome.

Renovations in the Freight Shed

Just a shot of some of the renovation work going on in the freight shed. Soon it will be time for painting and we hope to have volunteers for the work night on the 24th as mentioned here earlier.

The face lift will give some flexibility in our displays allowing us to change what is being shown as well as giving an area for giving presentations, shows and classes in the freight shed.

New display cases and some permanent displays are in the plans as are a new floor and better integration of our new heat pump heating and air conditioning system.

The Christmas Teas have become an annual Holiday Tradition here at the museum and are looked forward to by many. We are glad to have people like “104.9clearfm” drop by the museum for our events to help publicize them and join in on the fun.
