Area museum changes displays

VERSAILLES – If you’ve been putting off coming to the Versailles Area Museum to catch the awesome displays on Native Americans in our area, Poultry Days, or antique toys, you’ve waited too long and now they’re gone.

But you still have a little time to check out the fabulous DeMange Family’s story of music or the six businesses that have continue in our community for over 100 years.

Now making its debut is travel/vacationing in the 20th Century. From vintage car parts to local garage memorabilia, to antique camping and picnic gear and all those souvenirs  that made our memories so sweet. Not to mention those family reunion pictures all help to make a great new display about summer life in the last century.

“Dr. on Call” is another new display featuring items on loan from several area Doctors in the last century, giving all a peek at medical care that included house calls!

New displays are popping up all the time and with the Versailles All Class Reunion at the end of August, additional school spirited displays will be showing up “On the Street Where You Lived.” If you have items to lend contact the museum at 526-4222 and someone will contact you.

To get the new travel display kicked off right they will have several historic cars on their lawn on Sunday, July 27 (weather permitting) during regular museum hours from 1-4.
