Folks of the Galen Historical Society in Clyde have been working very hard to create a new display for their summer visitors at the Brick Church Museum. The exhibit will feature pictures and artifacts of downtown retailers in the mid-20th century. As in most small villages, the bustling sidewalks and thriving businesses have been hurt by the big retail chains, shopping malls and online shopping. This exhibit will give us a glimpse of what we have lost. Anyone who has pictures of downtown Clyde, the merchants, or artifacts of the old businesses and would be willing to loan or donate them to enhance the exhibit should call Hugh Miner at 315-923-4841.
The museum will be open on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 and during the Community Market on Thursdays from 3 to 6 starting on June 19 and ending on September 12.
