PULASKI – The Pulaski Historical Society will have a museum open house for the Salmon River Festival, with free tours and refreshments.
Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 9, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct 10.
Special fishing-themed and Salmon River exhibits will be featured.
Also, on Oct. 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., you are invited to bring your lunch (or pick up some take-out at a local eatery) and come join us in the Carriage House at the Pulaski Historical Society.
Take time to talk with your coworkers and neighbors, and perhaps make new friends. Coffee, tea, water or soda will be provided.
For the October Brown Bag Lunch, our speaker will be Terry Rossman, president of the historical society.
He will tell the story of what the Pulaski Democrat called at the time, “The most terrible conflagration ever known in Pulaski” – the October 1881 fire that devastated the downtown business district. On display will be a fire-created “artwork” artifact, along with photographs of the aftermath of the fire.
The Pulaski Historical Society is located at 3428 Maple Ave., across from Mavis Tire/Cole Muffler in the village.
The museum is open in October from from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Volunteers are available to help with research and questions at the regular work sessions on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
