The Anderson Falls Heritage Museum will be closing for the season on Thursday, October 12th. The Museum is located at 96 Clinton Street in Keeseville.
The Museum had a busy but enjoyable season with four programs starting in June with the Keeseville sixth graders touring the Museum. Thank you to the teachers who brought them and to our staff members who put the program together. We look forward to the sixth grade classes coming each year.
The Museum sponsored three Evening Programs – in July Dr. Susan Ouellette Professor of History at St. Michael’s College, Colchester, VT. spoke on “The French Influence on the North Country;” in August Don Wickman Director of the Kent-DeLord House Museum, Plattsburgh; author of “A Very Fine Appearance: The Civil War Photographs of George Houghton, Substitute Teacher at AVCS and freelances for the “Champlain Weekly” spoke on “Lake Champlain Over the Years” and in September Jeff & Mary Ellen Dengler presented a power point program entitled “AuSable Chasm – From Industrial Power to Scenic Natural Wonder”. All presentations were very interesting and informative thanks to our guest speakers.
Also in September our second annual tour of local cemeteries was held, which included Port Douglas, AuSable Chasm, Harkness and St. John’s Cemeteries.
Thank you to all who visited the Museum and to our volunteer members for their time, talents and treasures in staffing, developing displays, events and their support in operating the Museum.
Through the winter we will continue to work on new events, programs and displays for the 2018 Season. We will be opening from the first Tuesday of May 2018 from 9:00 am to Noon and Thursdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm through the second Thursday of October 2018.
