The Katherine Bell Hale Gallery

Named for local artist and devoted History Center board member Katie Hale, the gallery is wonderful addition to our museum offerings. A variety of exhibits curated by the History Center, or on loan from other institutions, fill the space at different intervals throughout the year. Each new exhibit is celebrated with an opening reception.

This exhibition provides an exciting and rare opportunity to see 19th and 20th century maps from our extensive collection--from hand-drawn maps of the early village to road maps for that new fangled automobile. Stop by for a chance to see the history of our community through a different vantage point.
