Displays Get New Look at Museum
09 13 12 CT

Displays at Grand River Historical Society Museum continue changing, and one of the latest ventures is creating text panels that explain in detail the exhibits being viewed.

With curator Pam Clingerman, is a Chillicothe Fire Department display containing history of the department and a number of items used over the years, including some when horses were the method of transportation to the fires.

A new display added to the museum recently was a dining suite (below), dating back to the 1800s, provided by former Chillicothe resident Ferd Lightner. The walnut table was constructed in 1864, and the burled walnut and caned chairs date back to 1832.

The museum is open from 1 until 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
