The Board of Trustees and volunteers have been busy over the past winter building new displays and expanding the mercantile.
The office that was just off the mercantile was opened up and shelves and cupboards were installed.
A counter was built in the style of canal era general stores. New canal clothing has been added as well as fleece blankets with the museum logo and new book titles.
There are two new dioramas. The first is in the Conference Center Meeting Room which depicts a canal boat going through a lock.
The warehouse is the home of the second diorama which shows an aqueduct in the three stages of construction. There are new pictures in the Conference Center meeting room and the hallway gallery.
