Versailles Area Historical Society Needs Your Help

In preparation for our “Grand Opening” we are redoing many displays and adding new ones!

We are looking for an icebox from the early 1900’s. Also any kitchen items used for canning and gardening of the same period.

We are searching for a small pup tent used for scouting as well as other scouting equipment and early uniforms (1940’s) period. Also PICTURES from those great trips through the years.

We are most interested in additional rail road items associated with our area and the Big Four/C.H.&D.

Also looking for Snyder/Ward hotel items including an ice cream table & chair set from the Ward Drug Store Soda Fountain.

Items made and sold at Poultry Days in the early years as well as Poultry history in general.

We need a small set of locker room type lockers (preferably from the old 1927 school and a locker room bench.

One room school house items (stool, coal bucket, teacher’s small desk) and 1952 high school lab table with stools and equipment.

Also looking for early barber equipment.

Remember we are grateful for your help and all items may be placed on loan.

We are also always looking for sponsors to assist in the cost of doing our permanent display of the historic town fire.

Anyone with items or questions may contact Jim Kelch at 937-526-4271. We are very excited about our new offerings and can’t wait to show off our work this coming June.
