GHS Has Exciting Plans for Summer 2018

There are some exciting changes at the Brick Church Museum this year! We have moved displays and cases around in order to make it easier to view our exhibits, like our beautiful Clyde Glass collection.
Our summer display is all about genealogy this year.  We have some interesting, and helpful hints about "digging up your family roots".  There is also the documents that the late Bill Dean collected and donated to the historical society that are available upon request. 
Our summer hours have changed again this year.  The Brick Church Museum will be open Wednesdays from 1-3pm from June 13th through August 29th.  We also added open hours at the Brick Church Museum on Thursdays from 3-6pm to coincide with the Clyde Community Farmers' Market in the village park.  These hours start Thursday June 14th and go through August 30th. We are planning extra open hours during the Clyde Community Festival in August.
Unfortunately, the Mill Museum is currently being refurbished and will not have regular open hours this year. Both museums are available for tours upon request. Just email us at, or call a key holder to make an appointment.
We are planning our annual picnic for Monday July 23rd, and an auction on July 25th.  Our fabulous Clyde Glass jewelry is currently available for sale, and we continue to accept memorial brick orders all year.  Watch for details in your next copy of our newsletter.  Have a great summer, and don't forget to drop in and check out our summer display!
