What's for Sale?
The museum first opened a store in 1983 which was staffed entirely by volunteers for the first dozen years. It was located in a small room in the Museum. In 1995, the Museum purchased half of the building located at 471 W. Western and the Mercantile was housed on the lower level and the Archives on the second floor. In 2005, the Mercantile relocated back to the Museum in order to be a more convenient place for our visitors to frequent. Museum members receive a 10% discount on their purchases, please let the Mercantile staff know you are a member as you check out.
