Several new displays are being featured at the museum this month.  Visitors are welcome to visit during regular hours of 10 to 4, Tuesday through Friday.

We think of brides and weddings in June, several wedding dresses worn by Jay County brides of the past are currently on display.

The cases in the kitchen are filled with memorabilia from former and present banks of jay County.  These items are all from the collection donated last year by Cherly Myers.

The large display boards in the museums continue to feature paintings by local artist Steve McClung in the new addition, along with the Hiday piano which recently arrived.  There will also be other changes in displays as the month progresses.
