Gibson Museum honors
to local history
Gibson Museum & Cultural Center's current exhibition schedule continues its program to honor the families that have played roles in the history of the community.
Opening August 1, our Families exhibit
features two of pioneer families, still represented in Middletown by Dee Groves, who at the age of 92 lives on the property known as the Coburn place that was settled by her parents in 1921.
Her uncle Huck Hamann's wife Skee was born to the Lundquist family which first settled here in 1886.
Gibson's Honor Our Families series was initiated in January, first honoring the family of former supervisor Jim Comstock. The February display honored the Pomo Simon family, of which current District 1 Supervisor Moke Simon is a member.
A joint display through April and May featured the Menzio and the Higgins families, followed by the Weatherwax family in June and July. All have been active in the business and social life of the Middletown area since the early twentieth century.
The museum is regularly open to the public, free of charge, from noon to 4 pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Gibson Museum & Cultural Center is located on Calistoga Rd. at the corner of Callayomi, opposite Community Park. For more information write to email@example.com, or call 809-8009 Thur, Fri, Sat - 10 to 4 pm.
Fascinating exhibits and events coming up all year!
