Changes afoot at PC museum

Saturday, July 11, 2009

There are changes afoot at the Putnam County Museum which guarantee visitors will be treated to at least one new exhibit each month.

"Four Corners" is the name being given to the new approach which involves four rotating exhibits: Founding Families, spotlighting the history of a founding Putnam County family; The Art Walk, continuing to display the art works of children and other individuals and groups; Historic Businesses, featuring businesses from all over the county that have played a unique role in development; and Community Curators, giving local organizations an opportunity to showcase their contribution to the quality of life in Putnam County.

Each of these exhibits will run for approximately three months, and will rotate so that a new exhibit is being displayed every month.

Currently, the Art Walk features art work from Comprehensive Services and inmates at Putnamville Correctional Facility.

Eitel's Flowers is now gracing the Historic Businesses corner. 4-H will be the Community Curator after the 4-H Fair.

The first Founding Family will center around the Brown House, the oldest standing home in the county, owned by Lora and Larry Scott.

"Putnam County Haunts" will replace "Red Rover, Red Rover..." in the fall.

The permanent exhibits continue to expand as space permits.

The Putnam County Museum is located at 1105 North Jackson Street in Greencastle, Indiana.

The museum is open 1-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday.
