The Meeker Homestead Museum will be open to the public on
Sunday, July 10 from 3-5pm.
“The Journey to Delaware County” explores the lives of early settlers in Delaware County.
Interactive displays will show how pioneers came to the “West” in the early 1800s, and the reasons they came, as well as stories and first-person accounts of the life they encountered once they arrived.
A replica of a covered wagon has been created and visitors will also “visit” Byxbe’s Mercantile and “purchase” the necessary supplies to complete the long journey. Docents will be on hand to answer questions.
In addition to “The Journey to Delaware County”, visitors will also see exhibits on:
- The 2019 Archaeology Camp for students
- American Indian artifacts
- The Delaware Chair Factory
- Stratford Mill Town
- The Interurban
- Spinning Exhibit
and much more
This free exhibit was made possible through the Delaware County Foundation by the generous donations from the Ron Sabatino Family Fund and the Charles H. and Betty J. Sheets Family Donor Advised Fund.
The Meeker Homestead Museum will be open:
The first Sunday of each month from 1-4pm (beginning in August 2022).
