Vernon Historical Society welcomes visitors ……

Museum receives more exhibits.


by Kathy Foster


Announcement of new exhibits come at Vernon Historical Society meeting on Wednesday.  The group  has received two handmade quilts and a coverlet, as well as two wool  cards, that will now be on permanent display at the Historical Society Museum.


The quilts and coverlet were made by Sarah Olive and Milbra Minerva, two of the eight children of John Franklin King and Mary Elizabeth Laird.  They raised the sheep, sheared the wool, carded the wool, and spun and dyed the yarn used in the items.   The quilts and coverlet were presented to the museum by Ernie Brock.


Membership in the Vernon Historical Society are $12.00 a year and the museum is open Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
