Dear Members and Friends
Current Exhibits and Events at the Museum
There are currently several special exhibits at the museum:
–Artifacts from the daily life of the original settlers of this area, the Lenni Lenape Indian tribe;
–Various items from the 1880’s found hidden in the walls of a local house;
–A collection of objects found in the local Olde Burial Ground when it was being renovated.
These exhibits would be of special interest to elementary school children.
We also have on display a collection of interesting historical books of the history of the area
and a colorful private collection of locally-made Van Cleve pottery.
