MINSTER — The Lake Loramie Heritage Museum opened last Saturday for the season.
It will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. each Saturday from now on through Sept. 17, 2016.
There will be a new exhibit of wildlife pictures featuring birds, animals and butterflies photographed around the Lake by Leon Mertz and Bob Huecker. In addition to this new exhibit the museum features a collection of historic hunting, fishing and trapping equipment. They also have tools and kitchen items that would have been used in a typical cabin, some dating back to the mid-1800’s. There are many old pictures of the various landings around the lake.
The Museum will feature two special events this year. On June 18 there will be a Reunion of Old Boats and Motors from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Aug. 13 there will be free Historic Pontoon Boat Rides from 1 to 4 p.m. Both of these events will take place at Earl’s Island Pavilion, State Route 362.
The museum is located in Lake Loramie State Park, State Route 362, across from the Swimming Beach.
