Hayden museum planning meeting

Hayden Historical Museum’s annual meeting will be conducted at 6 p.m. Tuesday as part of the Little Hoosier Historians last regular meeting of the school year at the pavilion.

The fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders will recognize outstanding chapter members.

Under the banner, “Here We Grow Again”, the Hayden Historical Museum has been on a three-year building fund drive to generate enough money to build a new building.

Under the guidance of the museum board members, Jeff Wheeler, Bill Kendrick, Melanie Wheeler, Lester Tracy, Pat Sullivan, Roger Graham, Scott Tuttle and Rodger Ruddick that mission has been accomplished.

A grand opening ceremony of this building will be conducted to celebrate the newest addition to the Hayden Museum complex.

“A Place Called Yesterday” will be a stand-alone museum for the personal collection of vintage music boxes, parlor organs, phonographs and record albums that were donated by Lester and Barbara Tracy of Seymour.

An almost complete collection of LIFE magazines also will make up a portion of the exhibit area.

Visitors will be able to experience the evolution of home entertainment before the days of electricity. They’ll be able to take a step back in time to see and hear how these various instruments operated and sounded in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The meeting is open to the public.
