story, I wasn't sure what I would find. One of those earnest local museums containing a hodgepodge of proudly donated treasures, lovingly displayed, but not especially well curated or interpreted, maybe.
We have spent many enthralled hours in such small museums, and admire the dedication of those who keep alive these vital links with our past.
A bucolic setting along Indian River, under Friendly Village trees (who remembers that reader from Grade 2?) Buildings moved from communities with which we have connections. Menie. Norwood. Keene.
Peaceful and uncrowded, yet there is a buzz. Creative and resourceful people, engaging events and programs. At the time of our visit, a week-long fibre-fest was culminating in a special event, the grand ribbon-cutting opening of a massive rescued and restored Jacquard loom at the museum village's S.W.Lowry weaver shop.
Demonstrations of all the 'womanly arts.'
