Event Description

Our museum has over 8,000 square feet of innovative and educational exhibits that celebrate the history, art and culture of our community, state and nation. Our lower level is dedicated to our agricultural heritage. It documents the role of agriculture and rural America in building our nation. This year theme is “Picking”…the good life; preserving America”s Heritage one piece at a time.  Join us this year as we explore a time gone by as represented by the collections and stories behind sewing machines, wedding gowns, pocket watches, hammers, canes, walking sticks and more.  Included in the displays will be several collections of local residents Junior and Peggy McBride.  Life-long collectors, their items are rarely displayed in public.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see interesting, unusual and unique items.
