Come and take a walk down memory lane. This museum, housed in a convent building of the early 1900’s, holds treasures from the area’s past, as well as of convent life. A homemade papier-mache crucifix adorns the hallway. In the next room, a smaller broken crucifix reveals German newsprint inside (which still can be read if you know German). Displays contain paintings, wood carvings, ceramic Mass Vessels, as well as Vestments which gifted Sister Artists created. You also discover Host makers (long iron handles with flat irons on the ends used for making Alter Breads in the epoch of fireplaces); hand-made, one-of-a-kind dolls, with porcelain limbs and faces that warm the heart with their quaint smiles.
The history of the Miami Erie Canal, along with artifacts and photos are on display. Another exhibit displays a bundle of flax, a spinning wheel and some clothing made in that early period of history. Wandering among the displays enlivens a sense of the past which envelops this area of Ohio.
