Two new exhibits offered at P.I. County Historical Museum

The Presque Isle County Historical Museum has opened its 2013 season with two new exhibits.

“The Way We Worked in Presque Isle County” is a take-off on last year’s”The Way We Worked” Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit that was hosted by the museum. This year’s exhibit features large-scale photographs of people at work throughout the county.

Additional photos of occupations not presently featured will be added throughout the season.

Also on display at the museum is a mini-exhibit honoring the 100th birthday of the Girl Scouts of America. The exhibit includes a complete Girl Scout uniform from the mid-1950s, donated to the museum by its owner, Ann Heron Moe, and a contemporary uniform loaned to the museum by Senior Girl Scout Ashley Budnik.

Both exhibits are on display in the museum’s Hoffman Annex at 175 W. Michigan Avenue, across the street from the Bradley House.

The Bradley House is currently undergoing repairs of damage caused this spring when a steam line broke on the building’s main floor. Museum officials expect to have the main floor and the second floor open in the near future. Repairs to the basement are expected to take another month.

The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
