Eric Sloane, noted author of 38 books and well known artist, assembled an extensive collection of hand tools. The museum displays these plus examples of his art work and his studio.  This season the museum highlights Sloane's interest in weather, skies and aviation with special exhibits and programs. Many of his book titles and art prints are sold in the museum shop.

 An exhibit in the museum and a walking trail with interpretive signs tells about the local iron industry.
