Sweet Vale of Avoca Museum

The Sweet Vale of Avoca Museum

is now in "Coronavirus Mode."

That means the Museum will NOT be open

to the public until further notice.

(Due to the coronavirus,

NO private tours will be scheduled.)

There will be NO Historical Society meeting in April.

There will be NO program in April, 2020.

November 23, 2019 - Thanks to Larry Ploen assisted by John Butcher, the new triangular Museum Sign is in place!!


After serious deliberation, the Historical Society has decided to postpone the wedding dress display that was being scheduled for this summer to the Summer of 2021. We had already started contacting people for the loan of their dresses 50 years old or older. We appreciate those of you who had agreed to loan your dresses for this display, and we hope you will still consider their loan in 2021. We appreciate your understanding!

Programs to Look Forward to . . .

SPECIAL NOTE:  NO programs are being scheduled until further notice.  We appreciate your understanding.

BE WATCHING FOR:  Photo presentation with Mary Pearson & Barbara Butcher showing some of the photos from the St. Mary's Church January trip to Ghana in West Africa.

PLANS ARE BEING MADE to have another exhibit of wedding dresses from community members.  We ask that the dresses be fifty years old or older.  Contact the Museum if you have one that could be displayed that was not in our 2017 Show.  (This exhibit has been postponed to the Summer of 2021.)
