About 1,000 items which had been originally displayed in the Daughters’ of the American Revolution room at the Jay County Courthouse and several large wooden and glass showcases were brought to the museum to begin our collection.
We have a large framed collection of graduating class pictures from the eight high schools which once covered the county. These are a focal point for individuals and families wanting to remember old friends or family members.
Our medical room contains a variety of medical and dental apparatus and instruments. We also have an iron lung which was used locally during the polio outbreak which devastated Jay County in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.
