Moro, OR – On May 1st, the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro will open for the season with a series of events – the work of preschool artists on display, a book signing, and two family nights, May 11 and 25.
Budding artists at North Sherman Preschool will kick-off the season with a month-long display to bring smiles to visitors. Parents and grandparents are invited!
Not long from the Portland Gift Show and a museum store retail workshop, Museum Store Manager Forest Peters Makelim is eager to offer new inventory and a Mother’s Day weekend book signing with Jane Kirkpatrick on May 8th.
From November through March, the Museum Team focused on the care and management of the artifact collections, exhibits, marketing and maintenance. Now, in anticipation of visitors, volunteers are engaged in a flurry of spring cleaning, grounds-keeping and maintenance, polishing, dusting and vacuuming the 13,363 square feet of exhibit space.
Visitors follow Sherman County stories through interpretive and hands-on exhibits: Oregon Trails, Rails and Roads in Sherman County, Wheat Through the Ages, Rural Living, Patriotism: Pride and Anguish, and Cultivation, Conservation and Clothespins. Local stories are published in a twice-yearly historical anthology, Sherman County: For the Record.
