AN ORANGETOWN SCRAPBOOK

With a scrapbook being a collection of select memories, carefully preserved and annotated, The Orangetown Historical Museum & Archives exhibit celebrates this phenomenon. Highlighting donations from several illustrious families in Orangetown, the ‘Scrapbook’ will take the viewer on several personal journeys – spanning centuries and historical milestones – to present a unique perspective of our town. Family photo albums compiled in the late 1800’s, a machinists memories of the Dexter Folding Company, WWII exploits, a farming center disappeared and making a comeback – these are some of the memories we will be exploring. Collecting and preserving our past is the theme of this exhibit as we invite the community to get inspired and take a look in their own attics .

Open to the public. Exhibition through November 16, 2014. Hours: Tuesdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.; Sundays 1 – 4 p.m. Admission: your donation.
