Paul Billings watched the Historical Society Museum recently. The Society meeting was postponed in June as many members were away. Next meeting is July 10.
The museum features the research of the late Ruby Emery on Woodstock which many visitors like to consult. There are many books on various topics of interest in the library.
They have a nice art gallery upstairs to which some prints were just added. Most of the art is supplied by Curator Larry Billings, including original oils and many prints. There are surprisingly few places you can see fine art in this area. The special exhibit at the Historical Society Museum is a poster on the Universities of Great Britain.
The museum is open each Saturday this summer from 1 to 4 p.m.
