Museum Displays for Summer 2019. The summer season for the Fulton County Historical Society Museum will open June 7, 2019, with a display of World War II clothing and artifacts in the Fulton House. While we have uniforms, we don’t have many other artifacts and ask that if anyone would like to lend us things for the summer, it would add to the experience. There will be two more permanent displays at the Annex this summer — the Overly–Raker display, being moved from the Fulton House, and the Native Americans in Fulton County, which includes artifacts found in the county.
Current News: The Annex has had an ongoing roof leakage problem that has been patched several times, to no avail. The Society has made the decision that the whole roof must be replaced. In November the roof over the banquet room was replaced and it was discovered that some roof joists were rotted, adding to the expense. The total cost for the roofs will be at least $100,000 and the Society has been working on ideas for funding. There will be more news about this later.
