This is a snapshot of the radio shop owned by A.K. Storie and Son. It looks a lot like today's Museum Music Room, at right. Pictured in the photo are Ray and Victor Woodworth.
Harold Storie was the first curator of the Museum (in what had been the Presbyterian "Manse.") in his role as Town Historian. The keys to the Manse were presented to Harold Storie on November 7, 1974. At this time, the Village Historian was Nelson Winters. The President of the Historical Association was Eugenia Huntress.
The goal of the Association was "Museum by '76." Fundraising and the acquisition of this beautiful building were milestones toward that goal.
