Norway’s 125 Years on Display This Summer Tours and exhibits to run Fri, Sat, Sun every weekend thru September The Jake Menghini Museum will be featuring scenes and stories from our community’s first 125 years during the summer of 2016.  We also have displays showing items from the 75th and 100th celebrations. A large case shows clothing, pictures, scrapbooks, and another displays many forms of advertising that the businesses in Norway have used over the years.   Our veterans display this year includes items from World War I thru Vietnam all items donated from people of the Norway-Vulcan and surrounding area. You will find photographs, uniforms, books and scrapbooks for you to view and look through.  We are featuring our Dressmaker Shoppe this year, which has been set up to resemble what a shop may have looked like back in the early days.  In each room of the museum and the Odill home will find articles of clothing on display from the 1800’s to the 1950’s.  You may also find your grandmother’s, mother’s or the first machine you sewed on along with many items that were used to help construct the articles of clothing worn a few years back.  Look, too, at the millinery, jewelry, shoes, and many other accessories from days gone by. The museum also has a large display featuring the Ojibway Native Americans, who were some of the first settlers of the area. Read the book attesting to this and see the arrow heads, clothing, and many other Native American items. We want to extend a warm welcome to anyone to join us each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1:00 to 3:00 until September 30, 2016.  Admission is only $3.00 per adult, with students thru Senior in High School admitted at no charge.
