Happy Thanksgiving!

In 1621, the colonists of Plymouth and the Wampanoag Native Americans celebrated with an autumn feast. Although Americans did not begin commemorating this event until 1863 and many of its details (including the actual date) have been lost to time, This year marks 400 years from that momentous day in 1621. Although we are closed today, Churchill County Museum appreciates you, and we wish you a happy holiday!

Pictured below are three tellers at the First Federal Bank, with Thanksgiving decorations made by local children.
