New Acquisitions

Our most recent acquisitions are these two post cards of early Main Street, c. 1908. The one above shows part of the original town hall, and new post office (built in 1906) on the right, but no courthouse next to it as it wasn't finished until 1909. On the left are the Glen and Glen shops. Note the hitching post with horse or donkey tied up to it.
This picture was probably taken from the standpoint of the original town hall on the right. Midway on the left is the building where the Central Garage stands today.

These post cards were mailed over 100 years ago and now have a place in our musuem. Thank you to the donor.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
