If you haven't taken the opportunity to visit our museum, please try to do so before our doors close for our successful 2016 season. Those who have visited this year, have given positive comments regarding the displays. The Lintner Chevrolet display has brought memories of car models we used to own or wish we had not traded it for another model and year. Oh, how we wish we could have that car back (when we actually long for the times of our youth they represent). The hundred year old WWI original posters still look as if they could have been printed last month. The story they tell of our nations history is of a generations' battle plan to keep this great nation great. The museums church display gives a small history of our area immigrants - Swedish, German, Greek, Slavik and others. These hard working families of the 1800s gathered together within their respective church groups and impacted the formation of our towns and villages. Some built the church buildings that still stand, but may or may not be used as places of worship today. Our area was rich in fruits and vegetable growing soils and many farms grew. Some immigrants labored within the many factory's that grew along the lake. Others fed the workers with restaurants and bakeries that still feed many area residents and visitors. Today with the very mobile culture we now have, these church groups are adapting in different ways, but always with their regional communities welfare in mind.
These are just a few examples of "stories" our 2016 displays tell. Regional towns of New Buffalo, Sawyer, Union Pier, Lakeside, Harbert, Three Oaks and more are mentioned within in our displays as The Region of Three Oaks tells this areas' story. Come, see, reminisce.
