Happy summer Morton Grovers! The weather is finally getting mild while the flowers are blooming.
This is a great time to visit the Morton Grove Historical Society and Museum. We will be open on Sunday, June 3rd from 12 PM to 2 PM. Starting Saturday, June 9th, we will open the museum from 9 AM to 1 PM for tours while the Farmer's Market opens one hour earlier! We will be closed on Saturday, June 30th in preparation for the Morton Grove Days Commission Independence Day festivities.
The Collecting Morton Grove exhibit is also open to the public in the Slater Annex (see the pictures posted in this blog.) We have items on display collected by the museum and local residents from toys and campaign buttons to matchbooks and greeting cards. You do not want to miss this exhibit!.
We also have interesting military memorabilia from WWI and WWII plus pictures taken in Morton Grove at special gatherings for the fire department and other local organizations. We have have a signed proclamation from President Franklin D. Roosevelt on display too!
We hope that you stop by to check out what the museum has on exhibit. Do not forget to visit the Haupt-Yehl House for a tour to learn about the family and Morton Grove's rich history! What more appropriate thing to do than see a historic farmhouse and buy locally produced items at the Farmer's Market on a hot summer day?
Please visit our Facebook page at anytime and stay tuned for our next blog post!
The Board, Volunteers and Staff of the Morton Grove Historical Society and Museum write about topics that are relevant to our current programs, events, collections, collective history, or sometimes topics they just find interesting and they hope you do too. Thanks for stopping by!
