Shepherdstown Museum to open April 4

By Staff | Apr 3, 2015

The Shepherdstown Museum will re-open for the spring, summer and fall on Saturday, April 4. The hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The museum is located in the historic Entler Hotel building at the corner of German and Princess streets

A new addition this year was made by art students at Washington High School. It is a modern version of one of the museum’s most colorful quilts.

From the quilts to impressive clocks, rifles, pots and kettles made by early German settlers, to an early Rural Free Delivery cart, the Museum’s objects tell the story of Shepherdstown and the Entler Hotel. A locally built replica of James Rumsey’s steamboat can be seen in its own building in the museum’s garden.

The suggested donation for adults is $4. Children and other students are admitted free. Tours can be arranged outside of normal hours. For further information, contact Historic Shepherdstown Administrator Teresa McLaughlin, 304-876-0910 on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday or e-mail info@historicshepherdstown.com.
