The Newark-Arcadia Museum Summer Hours are now in effect, throughout July & August: Wednesdays, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., and Saturdays (year-round), 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

The new exhibit, "Make a Date With Nobility Plate: the Empire Crafts Corp. - A Newark Success Story" recently opened. The exhibit is quite extensive and features the collection of member Phillip Durham, of Texas. There's all kinds of silver and china in many patterns, plus glassware, paper advertising and much more.

A new display, "Birds and Birding" has also recently opened. It includes early bird art, books and field guides, two Victorian egg collections, antique bird figurines, and much more. The display is a tribute to Lyman K. Stuart and T. Spencer Knight, both respected bird experts. Lyman Stuart won First Prize in a photo essay contest sponsored by LIFE Magazine in 1955. There were 35,000 photos submitted from 49 countries. His Flying Birds are pictured in a 1956 Life Magazine on display, which you are welcome to look at.

Another new display is the museum's collection of Newark Souvenir China (1895-1920), which features 50 different examples picturing the Custodial Asylum, Newark (Central) Park, the Library, Washington/Union School, the Fox Cottage where Spiritualism was founded in 1848, and more.

Admission is free (donations accepted). Tours welcome. Call 315-331-6409.
