The Arden Archives Collection is one of many collections in the Museum. It holds a wide variety of primarily printed material about the three villages. As the Museum is a collecting institution, new items and newly gifted old items are always being added. Committee members sort material and use the Finding Aid to file it in the right place. Researchers often use the collection to learn information about their chosen topics – in some ways it serves as a scrapbook for the Ardens.
Now, thanks to Councilman Cartier, we have the additional space we need to keep the collection safe. When you stop in to see the exhibition There’s a Gild for That or to pick up some additional greeting cards – be sure to admire the new cabinet – we are so please to have it in the Museum.
