His­tor­i­cal mu­seum to be closed this month

Dayton Daily News - - LOCALFOCUS -

The Bellbrook His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum is closed through the end of Fe­bru­ary.

The mu­seum cu­ra­tor, Janet Al­li­son, and trustees are work­ing on ex­hibits and build­ing restora­tion projects.

The Bellbrook His­tor­i­cal Mu­seum Trustees has an on­go­ing fundraiser to help pay for the build­ing restora­tion. Com­mem­o­ra­tive bricks can be pur­chased and per­son­al­ized for $50. They will be placed at the side en­trance of the mu­seum.

The mu­seum’s dis­plays fo­cus on Bellbrook’s rich his­tory and in­cludes ar­ti­facts and pic­tures from be­fore the area was set­tled to mod­ern times. The dis­plays con­sist of items that have been do­nated or loaned to the mu­seum by res­i­dents.

In 1965, Eve­lyn Brock deeded the prop­erty at 42 North Main St. to the Vil­lage of Bellbrook to be used as a his­tor­i­cal mu­seum to be main­tained by the city and open to the pub­lic.

The pub­lic can con­tinue to con­tact Al­li­son dur­ing the clo­sure at 937-848-2415. More in­for­ma­tion is avail­able on the city’s web­site at www.city­of­bell­brook.org. DIANA BLOWERS, CON­TRIBUT­ING WRITER
