Events for this year! 

Ron Gordon Memorial George Washington  Art Contest

The Museum was open February 24, 2019, for viewing and judging of the art work of the 27 finalists from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades of the Washington Elementary School.  Three winners were selected based on their artistic work and awarded a Barnes and Noble gift card on February 26 at the Museum.  All 27 finalists were treated to a pizza lunch followed by a tour of the Museum.  The Historical Society has held this event for ten years.  The idea for the event was the suggestion of one of our members, Ron Gordon, and is now named in his memory.  The funds used to sponsor the event come from our memorial fund originally created in memory of Virginia Bond, a long time member of the Society and resident of this community.
