Vintage Antiques from Alpine’s History: Thursday, March 5 at 6 pm
What do a McGuffey Reader, a butter churn, a monument marker, and a marriage license all have in common? They are all over a century old and can all be seen at Alpine’s John De Witt Museum. Tom Myers, President of the Alpine Historical Society, will bring a variety of objects, each over 100 years old, to the Alpine Library to illustrate the new poster exhibit at the Library. Tom will talk about each item, describe how it was used, and tell its story. The presentation will provide insight on the life and times of early Alpine settlers.
