Brown’s Mill School Opens this Weekend

Starting this weekend, Brown’s Mill School will be open on Saturdays and Sundays in July and August from 1:00-4:00.  The school is located near the intersection of Angle Road and Brown’s Mill Road in Kauffman Station.  Turn onto Kauffman Station Road W. from Rt. 11 S., then onto Brown’s Mill Road.  The school is across from Manito.

Bridal Exhibit Still on Display

We had a successful opening weekend with our Strawberry Social and new “Here Come the Brides” exhibit.  Thanks to everyone who came out!

The exhibit will remain on display until the fall so you still have a chance to see the beautiful gowns!  Admission to the exhibit alone is $2.00 and includes a pamphlet about the exhibit pieces.

We are now a Blue Star Museum!

Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel including National Guard and Reserve and their families from Memorial Day, May 29, through Labor Day, September 4, 2017.  For more info: Blue Star Museums
