Two new displays are now at the museum. One is celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Jay-Randolph Developmental Services. The other high-lights the town of Salamonia.
Jay-Randolph Developmental Services is a private non-profit com-munity social service agency serving people with developmental disabilities.
Another new display highlights the history of Salamonia from 1852 to the present. From 1839 to 1852, it was known as Lancaster, and was a com-munity of German settlers. It was laid out and named by Henry and Sarah Ann Able and Benjamin and Nancy Goldsmith.
The display highlights several businesses such as Aker’s General Store and Post Office, Shreeve’s Garage and Filling Station, Murl May’s Shop and Appliances, and Lew Gimble’s Black-smith Shop.
These displays will be up until January 2024, for anyone who wishes to see them.
