Edgerton to open historical museum

Edgerton will soon have its own museum.
The Edgerton Community Museum will have its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.on Saturday, Oct. 19, with the museum remaining open until 2 p.m. that day.
The museum is located directly east of City Hall in Edgerton.
Charlie Troutner, president of the Edgerton Historical Society, said a group of volunteers have been working hard the last few weeks to get the museum ready to open. “We are all very excited that a museum is finally going to open in Edgerton. This town deserves a museum, so everyone can learn about Edgerton’s rich history”.
The museum will concentrate solely on Edgerton history and will have donated and loaned artifacts on display for visitors to enjoy.
“It is our hope that people will visit the museum and leave with a better understanding of what and who helped make Edgerton what it is today”, remarked Troutner.
Initially, the museum will be open on Saturdays, beginning Oct. 26, from 10 am to 2 pm, and by appointment, with free admittance, but donations will be gladly accepted.
Edgerton residents should mark their calendars for Oct. 19 to help celebrate the opening of a museum in Edgerton.
For questions, those interested in donating or loaning items or in volunteering at the museum can call Charlie Troutner, at (913)893-6270.
