Museum Opens for Season

Over 100 plates of cookies, brownies, and muffins, cakes, and loaves of bread were sold during the Oneida Pioneer Museum’s Grand Opening Bake Sale on Saturday, May 28. Provided by Museum Board members and friends, the goodies attracted dozens of visitors to the Museum on its opening day.  All proceeds from the bake sale and all donations will go toward remodeling projects in the Museum, including installing earthquake tension bars and sheet-rocking the rooms on the third floor.

Some visitors came to see the newly cleaned and refurbished bear. Others brought donations, including an auto-knitter that was used by Rula Yearsley Gowers to make socks. Visitors enjoyed the scenes featuring items from the Museum’s collection that are located throughout the Museum. They were set up by JoAnn Peters and Brianne MacDougal as part of the fabric preservation project so there are new things to see at the Museum this year.

The Museum windows were decorated by Dotty Evanson, Sharon Harris, Janice Vaughan, Hailey Willie, and Liz Kent.  The east window features scenes from Welsh life, including mining, music, and quilting. The Welsh quilt was made by the Oneida Quilters. The south window tells the legend of Samaria’s Mine with the Iron Door.

The Museum will be open regular hours through Labor Day:  Tuesday – Saturday from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Hostesses this summer are Shelia Hawkins and Kristle Jensen.
