The Museum's new Education Exhibit debuted during our November meeting. Stop in for an a interesting look at educating the area's children in days gone by.
The band uniforms at left are featured in the collection and highlight just one of the many extra-curricular activities that local students have participated in over the years. Items on display range from the early one-room schoolhouse days to items from Bermudian Springs School District's "new" high school and middle school dedication.
Come see if you can find yourself or your friends & family among the memorabilia!
