Oakfield Historical Museum Open House
posted by Jamie Lindsley in local history.
The Oakfield Historical Society proudly opens our doors each Sunday afternoon to the public. This year we are so excited to bring back the United States Gypsum Company display. We had highlighted the USG a few years ago, since then we have had so many calls and letters from people all over the country asking us to see it as they were traveling through. After much discussion we decided to make this a permanent display. The USG helped form Oakfield, so many people came here to find work. You will also find our new display “Community Organizations”, here will learn about the IOOF, IOOB, Mother’s Club, Lion’s Club, the Grange, Betterment Committee and the Drum & Bugle Corp. Something else we are pretty excited about is a short video we found of Dr Marian White’s “dig” at the Indian Woods from the 1950’s. In our Native American room you will find some really neat reproductions as well as some great artifacts. Make sure you check out our Facebook page for the Oakfield Historical Society we are always updating with pictures, polls and upcoming events. https://www.facebook.com/OakfieldHistoricalSocietyNY/ Find us on Twitter and Instagram too. We also offer our many fascinating publications about Oakfield. These make great gifts - buy one for yourself too! http://oakfieldhistory.org/index.php/items-for-sale/ For a personal tour, please contact: Laurie Nanni 585-259-4145 or Dar Warner 585-948-5926.
