TREASURE FOUND at PAINE-GILLAM-SCOTT MUSEUM
Volunteers found a treasure on the front porch of Paine-Gillam-Scott Museum left by an anonymous donor. The scrapbook containing “old time” pictures, newspaper clippings from The Republican News, school programs, obituaries, family pictures and other interesting articles. The weather cooperated as the album was not protected.
The museum scans photographs, documents and newspaper clippings, etc. and stores the images in the Past Perfect software program. If you have photographs or documents you want scanned instead of donating, please call 989-224-2894 or 989-292-9096. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org. An appointment can be made, or visit on Wednesday 2 pm-6:30 pm or Sundays 1 pm-4 pm.
The exhibit for 2017, “Early Transportation and Fashion” features photos, artifacts, travel clothing, a renovated buggy, etc. Plan to visit and look back in time to see how travel has changed in Clinton County.
