Small towns of Putnam County exhibit to open Saturday at museum

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

The Putnam County Museum will open a Small Towns of Putnam County exhibit on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The exhibit will be open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday. All are invited to join in as the museum begins telling the story of some of the small towns of our community.

"The exhibit features stories and artifacts from Mt. Meridian, Belle Union, Fillmore, Brick Chapel, Cloverdale, Roachdale, Bainbridge, New Maysville and Fillmore, and will grow and change over the coming months to include other small communities as well," Assistant Director Sarah Myers said.

Those in attendance on Saturday will be invited to share any of their stories, recollections or memories of local communities.

Museum visitors are invited to become members of the museum during a membership drive this fall.

"We have several exciting exhibits and events coming this fall," Director Tanis Monday shared. "We hope that those visiting will join the ranks of our membership so that we can keep them up to date on coming events and programs, with the added benefit that admission is free for our members in appreciation of their support."

The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 1-4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is located at 1105 N. Jackson St. in Greencastle. Admission is free.

The museum invites anyone with questions, stories or artifacts to share about local small towns to call 653-8419 or
