"Turmoil During the First Quarter of the 20th Century"

Lots of interesting things are in store for local residents in 2018. Besides our annual Cemetery Tour, Ghost Tour and Christmas of Yesteryear programs, we are focusing on various, little-known, but interesting events that happened here between 1900 and 1925. The highlight of the year will be our 2nd bi-annual Civil War Living History Weekend in September.

Check our Programs & Exhibits page for more details about upcoming programs and new activities being planned by your Society.

Our museum is open Monday-Friday 1-5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-Noon. Please stop in and visit.
