The village of Springs, PA will increase in size with the season opening of the Springs Farmers’ Market/Flea Market and the Springs Museum Saturday.
The Springs Historical Society is currently preparing new exhibits in the museum and hosting new vendors at the market, offering items of interest to everyone. Celebrating its 61st year, the Springs Museum continues to grow, and the group is presently working on plans for more expansion to house additional exhibits.
The Historical Society’s mission is to preserve the history and artifacts of the region, and curator Rich Yoder noted that he strives to follow that mission.
The opening will include a special exhibit for the summer about Wagner’s Sugar Camp. Many new items have been donated, including old *spiles and Tom Shenk and Robert Miller’s sugar camp paintings. There is new information from the Wagner Sugar Camp’s appearance on the TV show “Dirty Jobs” and an additional large wool wheel created by Joel B. Miller.
*spile |spīl| noun1 a small wooden peg or spigot for stopping a cask.
