Harvard Historical Museum to open June 1

HARVARD – The Harvard Historical Museum, 308 N. Hart St., opens for the 2013 season from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 1 and 2 in conjunction with Milk Days.

Visitors will be able to see the museum's Milk Days memorabilia and view films of previous parades.

On display for the month of June will be the museum's collection of Harvard High School graduation collage pictures of classes from the 1940s to the 1970s. These were taken and compiled by the Richard Montgomery Studio.

The museum is open from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Sundays through October.

Community members are invited to visit the new research room to learn about Harvard's ancestors and history. There also is a large collection of abstracts for local properties, both town and country.

The museum always needs volunteers. Anyone intersted in preserving the town's heritage should call 815-943-6141 and leave a message.
