The Denmark Historical Society invites everyone to a Christmas Open House at Centennial Hall in the village of Denmark, on Sunday, December 10th from 2-4pm. Historic artifacts found by KittyWalsh will be on display, as well as selected artifacts from the Historical Society’s collection. Ms. Walsh has spent many hours at old homestead sites in and around Denmark, looking for artifacts with her metal detector and her efforts have been rewarded with some interesting finds. She has found oxen shoes, old coins, old rings, pocket watches, and old buttons from the 1800s. She has found horse tack, pewter spoons and more. Also on display are several examples of early mill machinery, illustrating early water-powered technology from the 19th and early 20th centuries, including two box nailing machines and an 1890 four-sided planer, as well as a beautiful horse drawn sleigh, and a hand painted stage curtain which was generously donated by Don and Marion Monson.
Centennial Hall, located at 72 West Main Street in Denmark, was originally built in 1876 and has recently been restored. Refreshments will be served and Kitty will be on hand to talk about her artifacts collection. There is no charge for the event but donations to the Denmark Historical Society are gratefully accepted.
