Exhibit Prep – Sears Years

This video shows a behind the scenes look at our upcoming exhibit, Sears Years. This exhibit will match artifacts from our collection with historic Sears, Roebuck and Company catalog entries. Come check it out in January of 2023. We will announce its opening date soon!

Holiday Craft Bazaar

Our popular Holiday Craft Bazaar returns on Friday and Saturday, November 18th and 19th, from 11am-4pm each day in our conference room at the museum. It will feature many handmade items like soaps, windchimes, ornaments, stockings, seashell magnets, jewelry, knitted items, paper dolls, stockings, sublimated items, and more from many vendors. 

Stock up on decorations, find perfect gifts for the holidays, and support the museum at the same time. See you there!

Home Movie Day

Do you have home movie film reels in your closet or attic? Do you wonder if these home movies are still viable? Would you like to see them again, but don’t have a projector to play them? Well, you’re in luck!

The museum will be hosting Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 8th, from 11am-3pm. Bring your 8mm and/or 16mm film in to be inspected by film archivist, Christopher Melton. Get advice on how to properly care for your films, and most importantly, get to see them again.

Connect with your own past, your family’s history and your local community with Home Movie Day! Come anytime between the hours listed above to participate.
