BIG THANKS TO OUR MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS!
 

More than 50 people attended TROTOM's holiday party, a party meant to thank our volunteers for their service throughout the museum season. If you're interested in helping out at the museum-- as a docent at the front desk, or behind the scenes helping archive our collections or putting together exhibits and events, please email us at trotommuseum@gmail.com or call 269-336-9688.

We dined in a new event space in the historical mechanical

building of the Feather- bone factory. Thanks,

Classic Catering!

Attendees tested their knowledge with The Fabulous Region of Three Oaks History Challenge.

 

From the first peoples to the pioneers to the early industrialists to the present day,

the region of Three Oaks, Michigan has a fascinating history.

The Region of Three Oaks Museum was created in 2004 to tell that story in artifacts, pictures,
words and video. 
Come visit us and discover it all for yourself!

Several new or greatly augmented exhibits will debut during the 2020 museum season.

Details coming soon to our "Exhibits" page.

 

We got a peek at the "grotto" below the party space, which used to store water for the Featherbone factory complex.

TROTOM board members Julie & Chuck Sittig flank the owner of the Featherbone mechanical building, Jim Wisner.
