CLARKS SUMMIT - History buffs who also enjoy a glass a fine wine or antique paintings may want to visit Clarks Summit Saturday.
The Grand Opening of the Clark's Summit Museum in Loughney Hall (second floor of the borough building) will be held at 1 p.m. August 11.
"One of the last things the Clark's Summit Centennial Planning Committee did was allocate surplus funds to establish a museum in the borough building," co-chair of the museum and Secretary of the Centennial Planning Committee Dennis Martin said.
The event will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony and members of the Centennial Planning Committee will have a Meet and Greet with the public.
According to Martin, the museum can be accessed during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
"There are a lot of large pictures on the wall, including a map from the 1920s," Martin said. "A large museum case, which contains artifacts and memorabilia related to Clarks Summit history, has also been re-shelved.
Martin added that artifacts, including vintage adding machines and typewriters, along with a lot of old bills from Citizens Savings Bank, will be rotated over time.
"We would love to get more stuff and expand," he added.
The event coincides with the 2nd Annual Clarks Summit Arts and Wine Festival, which is partly supported by a grant from the Centennial Planning Committee.
"We've funded some activities of the Arts Council of the Abingtons and think they are a nice legacy of our Centennial," Martin said.
