Occupying more than 3,300 square feet of renovated gallery space, exhibits trace the area’s history from the city’s founding to the mid-20th Century through significant events in business, labor, medicine, leisure, wartime and entertainment. The museum evaluates and accepts donated historic artifacts and maintains a growing library of history books, photographs, historic maps and documents for public use. A new exhibit on businesses in operation 75 and longer is planned for late 2011.
