Tupper Lake Heritage Museum
The Heritage Museum was the dream of the late Arthur Richer. He witnessed the beginning before his passing. Since then a group of women have carried on with his vision and were ably assisted in reorganizing the exhibits in 2014 by Carol Poole.
The museum is handicapped accessible, with a lift chair to allow access upstairs exhibits. After moving five times, the museum now has a home in the 115 year old downtown fire house at 54 Pine Street. What better place to relive the past? The museum committee hopes to be able to remain there.
A new exhibit related to veterans and their service is being developed. Anyone with uniforms, medals, letters, etc. is asked to consider loaning them to the museum. Copies of letters, journals and the like will be made and originals will be returned to their owners. Please check your attics and loan your artifacts to the museum.
Show your pride in Tupper Lake and your heritage. Above all set aside a day to visit the museum and learn about the glory days of Tupper Lake. Additional members and volunteers would be welcome. There is no admission charge but donations are welcome.
