YOU CAN STILL CELEBRATE OUR 50TH YEAR with Commemorative items available at the museum to add to your collection!
The Baldwin Lake Bridge glass celebrates our newest exhibit titled, “Postcards from Baldwin Lake,” and the Flat River Historical Museum glass commemorates the Golden Jubilee Anniversary Year of the museum established in 1972. Thanks to Fran Schuleit for sharing her exquisite artwork of historic landmarks to view again and again as you celebrate our local community.
Start your day with your own custom museum logo mug filled with coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Use it at home or use it at work. It’s is a great way to show your support of the museum, and practical, too! Limited supply.
Commemorative coins and patches are also available at the museum.
We are also selling two booklets filled with interesting history:
“Pioneer Life in the Big Dane Settlement” is a collection of newspaper articles written by August Rasmussen for the Greenville Independent in 1902. These memoirs include his account of the journey from Denmark to Gowen and the achievement of his dreams with wife Anne in their new Danish settlement in America.
“Celebrating Women of Early Greenville” is a collection of short biographies of local women, who each in her way, devoted her life to the interests of home, church, and various organizations which contributed to the betterment of the Greenville community.
Keep watch for coming events!
The Museum is open from 2:00 to 4:30 every Saturday and Sunday mid-April through November
