Curt Broihahn and Board member Joe Sherwin stand in front of the beautiful new display case. Curt is a great craftsman. If you would like to contribute toward the cost of the display, we would appreciate it greatly.
A brass plaque will be placed on the cabinet with the names of donors.
The Old House Enthusiasts have a digital home on our website. Check out their page.
Those of you who may have visited the Cunningham Museum in the past will notice new and exciting changes.
A beautiful new display case, (primarily due to Joe Sherwin’s and Jon Angeli’s efforts,) will be the first thing you will notice when you walk in the main room.
Several exhibits have been expanded and enhanced, some with the help of Tom Lucke and Joe Schmitz and Geri Cooley.
A new permanent exhibit has been added in the Military Room, which honors Vietnam and Korean War veterans.
The temporary Christmas display, A Steinbach Nutcracker Collection, (compliments of Alex Bowden, Larry and Shirley’s son,) has been extended for your enjoyment. (Maybe Shirley/Larry will give us some history about Steinbach nutcrackers and how their son came to own the collection.)
A previous exhibit devoted to Dr. E. Cronin (1812 – 1892) has been refreshed, prompted by the generosity of Rick Udelhofen.
