Upstairs, new exhibits are available as well as the unusual artifacts where viewers are challenged to identify them.
The Heritage Tour
This springtime historical tour was a journey from the past to the present and into the future. It began at the Neversink Town Hall with a vast collection of local post cards from the past. From there two buses, with narrators, took participants on a tour of the Town of Neversink’s historic sights, old barns and barn quilts. The complete tour was seventy miles, and ended at the under construction addition to the Daniel Pierce Library and future home of the Time and the Valley Museum Here people could get a glimpse of the new building inside and out. Time and the Valleys Museum was assisted by the Neversink Renaissance, Ye Olde Tri Valley Townsman and the Town of Neversink Parks and Recreation Department.
Willowemoc History Kiosk
The Willowemoc History Kiosk was created for visitors to learn accurate facts about the Willowemoc area. The Time and the Valleys Museum and the Town of Neversink played a significant part in the creation of this kiosk. A list of Willowemoc events were used as the basis for the gathering and scanning of information. The history captions were written by the historian and checked for accuracy both with local residents and available records.
