If you’ve ever wondered why the building at 7 Green Street, right across from the Library, has a sign on the front that reads “Adams Lodge, IOOF, 1900” stop by and have a look at this month’s exhibit.
Instead of the photographs and documents usually on display in the Local History exhibit case, this month we’ve got a bunch of things, or more formally, artifacts, relics, realia.
What kind of things are these, you might ask? If Julie Andrews were here, she’d sing it like this…
A box full of shoe tacks, a piece of bog iron
A stereoviewer, a cat’s paw for prying
A hammer for caulking, a key on a string
These are a few of my favorite things
Well, okay, maybe not.
