Look What’s New!


Last month we highlighted two new displays which volunteers have prepared at the museum is being readied for its first Open House of the year on April 14th.  Those are the displays of painting by Harry Leonard and his daughter-in-law, Vickie Odle Leonard, and the little red chair and doll which now overlook Janice Stucky’s desk.  Another new display, prepared by Claudia Jones from the Cheryl Myers collection, is a group of photographs by some of Jay County’s early photographers.
