IMLAY CITY — Take a step back in time and learn about local history as the Imlay City Historical Museum kicks off its 2023 season next week.
Beginning Saturday, April 1, the museum will open its doors with extended hours from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Visitors will be treated to new exhibits and upgrades at the museum, including special displays, says historian Marilyn Swihart in a press release.
“Much time has been spent the past three months developing new exhibits and completely renovating the red annex building,” Swihart says.
The annex building hosts a display of vintage washing machines, an exhibit on Imlay City’s own Deluxe Theater, dental office exhibit, farming tools, electric and water devices and more, Swihart adds.
The museum’s caboose and dining car, along with the annex and the depot museum will be open to visitors with this year’s theme ‘Our Agricultural Heritage.’
“An exhibit in the depot highlights the history of creameries and dairy farming in the area,” Swihart says. “Stop by. Take this special opportunity to enjoy a local treasure.”
Throughout the coming months, the museum will be open from 1-4 p.m. every Saturday through December.
The Imlay City Historical Museum is located at 77 Main Street downtown.
