Virtual Museum


Items from the home of the library’s benefactor, Mr. Isaac Hagaman, who provided the funding for the current building built in 1928, have been housed over the years in the upper rotunda level display cases and conference room of the library.  In addition to items  from the Hagaman homestead, built in 1769 (no longer standing) items donated by other individuals such as George Kirkham, Edwin Gustafson and George Chidsey have also been housed in the museum areas of the library.  In recent years, two of the horizontal display cases from the upper rotunda have been moved to the front entrance area of the lower rotunda in order that  people may view these items as they enter the library.

The Virtual Museum is an attempt to locate museum items that have been scattered over the years in various locations in the library,  and present these items for public view as well as to create an interest in objects we may now view as quaint and curious. It is also an attempt to determine which items, are now missing.
