Research

The ground floor of the Museum houses an extensive research library.  The library, under the guidance of Sharon Bourquin, includes documents, clippings, scrapbooks, photos, maps, books and printed local histories.  It is a valuable resource for students, professionals, historians, genealogy researchers and scholars.

Thanks to a recent donation we now have access to ancestry.com. Stop in, checkout our research library and start work on your family tree. Volunteers will be there to help you out with your research.
