As we close in on the holidays, we will open Sunday from 1-5 p.m., and I hope you will have a chance to drop by, say hello, and shop our unique offerings. Coffee and conversation is also readily available! The new puzzles are selling well, and they can be found on the Museum website store. Volume 12 of Reminiscences features extensive writings about the once popular Toll House Restaurant, founded by Easton's own Ruth Wakefield. Pick up your copy and one to use as a gift! If you can't make it in tomorrow, we will be open most weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday mornings until Christmas.
Director Jonathan Coe has been a pretty busy guy around the Museum, and this week, he made shelves to display some special items. Upon entering the building, you can see a model steam engine, coal tender, and caboose from the Boston and Albany Railroad and a great model truck from the McCarthy Freight System. Inside the Women's Waiting Room, look up above the ticket window to see a nice train set from the Lackawana Railroad. It includes a steam engine, tender, and five cars! We hope that this might inspire someone who has an Old Colony Railroad or New York, New Haven, & Hartford Railroad set to add to this collection, as these are the two railroads that once owned our Museum building. A third item is a vintage ad for Simpson Spring. The photos taken by Jon are featured below.
I hope to see you or hear from you in the coming weeks.
Stay well, and stay safe,
Anne Wooster Drury
