What's New at the Taber Museum?
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society has recently been notified that it is the recipient of two grants which will aid in marketing and the production of programming.
The second annual YesterFest! fundraiser was held on the grounds of the Taber Museum on Saturday, October 8, from noon to 6:00 p.m. Those who attended enjoyed touring the Taber Museum, historical demonstrations, children’s activities, games, live music, and other activities.
On Sunday, July 17, Robert E. Lee, III spoke on historical uses of the outhouse to a group of 20 very interested people. During the program, Mr. Lee talked about how outhouses, or privies, were often used to discard broken household items and items that families no longer wanted or needed.
On April 16, 2011 Children spent a rainy morning at the museum decorating Easter baskets with ribbons and beads, and painting non-edible animal cookies to put in them. Each child left us one animal to hang on an Easter tree, which is on display in the Taber Museum.
