|The Museum's Living Room is filled with treasures which have been donated by local residents or were given to the museum through long-standing town or village collection. Everything you see, in every room of the museum, has local ties, either to individuals, businesses or families.
An example of donations by residents is the marble table in the corner of the room. It was donated by Mrs. H.W. Sprague. The desk under the window was made from a small reed organ called melodeon and was donated by Ruth Cahoon (Mrs. Weldon.) It had once belonged to Henry Scott. The unusual set of turned wooden cups came from the Village of Gouverneur's collection when the museum was established.
