Evening at the Museum

The society presents programs on local history one evening a month from March through December at the museum. It's a very successful program for area residents interested in local history. The museum director or knowledgeable volunteers about subjects of local interest present the programs.

The programs are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.  in the museum at Fourth and Market streets. No charge for attendance. Freewill offerings are gladly accepted.
