HISTORY OF THE MUSEUM SHOP
In 1974, shortly after the Society found a home -- and museum -- in the former Carnegie Library at 215 Main Street, two volunteers were asked to sell a box of used goods that was taking up space. The items were priced at $.25 each, and from that box on the museum’s lobby steps, the Shop was "born." Several years later, with a donation from the Cavagnaro family, an addition was constructed to house the Museum Shop.
