Let’s take a quick look at a new addition to Sauder Village! If you’ve been to our Museum Building, you know it is truly a “treasure chest of Americana” . . . featuring rows of farm equipment, tools, washing machines and more! Our founder, Erie Sauder, was interested in preserving these artifacts to share with future generations. And today, our curator of collections is working to preserve these treasures while also helping to share their story!
To help create some visual interest in the Museum Building and better tell the story of these artifacts, our curator of collections, Tracie Evans, has created some special new exhibits. Some of the first exhibits you’ll see are “Children at Play in 1900” and “Time for Fun” – sharing the story of how children and families enjoyed their leisure time. Other displays include “A Winter Harvest,” “Expressions of Grief,” and “Incubators, Brooders & Chicks, oh my!” We hope you’ll take time this season to wander through the Museum Building to enjoy the thousands of items on display and the unique new exhibits that help tell stories of life in the past!
