December 7 event to celebrate opening of new exhibit
The Lenawee Historical Museum will host an open house on Friday, December 7 from 5:00-7:00 P.M. to celebrate the start of a temporary exhibit about historical architecture.
The Lost Architecture of Adrian exhibit will feature images of homes, commercial buildings and other architectural features that were once present in Adrian. There is no cost to visit the museum located at 110 E. Church St., Adrian.
The exhibit, which was researched by Adrian College senior Cheyenne Sliter, features both houses and commercial buildings, including the former Masonic Temple building (202 W. Maumee St, Adrian). Built in 1867, the Masonic Temple caught fire in 1893 destroying the roof and the cornice along the third floor. Reconstruction took place and the building today houses Huntington Bank.
The exhibit will be on display beginning Friday, December 7.
The museum is open Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.
Chaloner's "Turk" Ornaments are available at the museum for $10 (cash or check) and online $10 (plus $7 shipping)
