Stories from the Museum Book


Each month from September through May, during the 2011 - 2012 season, artifacts and their stories selected from the vast collection from Pioneer Memorial Museum have been highlighted for presentation at camp meetings. These artifacts have been chosen from our Pioneer Memorial Museum booklet which contains color photos of the month. From each page of this book we are choosing just one or two artifacts for you to highlight in your camps.
