It is now a requirement that the Museum to practice "social distancing" as long as it is necessary. We also encourage everyone who has to be out and about to wear a good quality mask. The corona virus is not a joke or something to be ignored.

We have been able to begin working on changing our displays, and the theme when we open – hopefully in the next couple of weeks – will be on the county's covered bridges.

As part of the fund-raising activities, a "Radiothon" and auction were held Tuesday, April 30th. These were a big success, rasining over $17,000 in gifts and pledges. The Museum staff and volunteers were assisted by many of the County's veterans, as shown by the following set of photographs.
