NEW ON THE WEB
If you haven't been to the web site recently, you are missing a very interesting addition. Wayne has posted documentation from an early settler in New Bloomfield who wrote about the "Early New Bloomfield History". This is a series of six letters written in 1882, to the "Fulton Gazette" by one of the earliest residents of the New Bloomfield area. In them he explains how he came with his family in 1819, what he saw when he arrived and watched this county grow.
You can read these as posted in letter form, or, if you prefer, you may listen to an audio version of the letters, all on the web site.
NOTE: The museum has received several new items you will want to see. These include some very interesting additions to items from World War II, a Civil War mortar round and an entire display of findings from an old pottery works.
The museum is always interested in showing your items. Please bring anything you would like to have the museum consider so the accession committee can review them for acceptance.
A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
