Barn Tour

Posted by montomerycountyhistorycenter on June 13, 2010 at 7:23 AM Comments comments (1)

The Barn Tour is a huge success.  Yesterday we had many visitors to the Nim's Barn and to the main building, despite the weather.  We loved seeing everyone.  We Also have new livestock in the Nim's Barn.  We now have a fiberglass cow (that can be milked), horse, pig, and calf.  Today, there may be many more visitors from the tour.

 

The barn and corn crib have been getting a new coat of red paint.  It is still in the process, but they are almost finished.   Just a few more touchups and then the white trim..

 

Everyone seems to enjoy the walking trails that join all the outside exhibits and provide a lovely tour of the grounds.  We are working on a grant to get some new park benches and picnic tables.  Everyone is welcome to use the trails at any time.  It is a great workout for those who are just wishing to get a little exercise.

Open House and Unveiling

Posted by montomerycountyhistorycenter on April 24, 2010 at 8:13 PM Comments comments (0)

The Open house was a great success.

 

We had over 60 visiters.  The mural is beautiful and is a must see exhibit. 

James Hoskinson should be proud of his accomplishments.  We will continue to enjoy his exhibit for months and years to come. 

Thank you James for your hard work.

Thanks to everyone that made the open house such a success and especially to the many visitors that shared the event with us.

April 9, 2010 updates

The History Center has been buzzing with activity.

The murals of the historical Red Oak Square have been completed - A big thank you to James Hoskinson.

Progress is being made on the new Military Exhibit.

The outside grounds are getting an extreme make-over.  A new drive way and parking area has been completed at the rear of the building.  Antique farm equipment now flanks the driveway.

New trees are being planted

Walking trails are being completed that will connect all the outside exhibits and gardens.  Hopefully, in the near future, you will be able to stroll around the beautiful grounds or just sit and enjoy the peaceful tranquility.  Everyone in the community will have access to the trails. 

Also, when you visit, you might take notice of the new Buffalo that stands guard just outside the Stip Log House.
