Fairmount Historical Museum spruces up for season opening

New displays and items readied for April 1 opening

(Continued)

“The upstairs (Fairmount history section) is a total redo because of the new cases,” Reeves said. “We’re going to try to do this in a progression of history.”

For his part, Winslow has invested untold hours recreating the Dean exhibits. He was inspired by techniques used in last year’s exhibit, ''Eternal James Dean'', at the Indiana State Museum. A few of his items that went to Indianapolis returned with their improved preservation methods. He’s now got many documents standing up in plastic holders so they can be read.

Winslow commended Reeves’ work.

“I think they’re positive changes—very nice,” Winslow said. “A lot of the stuff has been here but it wasn’t displayed so you could see it. I’ve thought it needed changing and he’s the person to do it.”

All agreed that the pay-off for their efforts will be an enhanced experience for visitors.

“We’ll put something in the (Dean) fan newsletter,” Winslow said. “We’ll try to let them know. That’s the reason I do it, for Fairmount, for the museum, and for the fans.

If You Go Fairmount Historical Museum Open for the season from April 1-November 1 Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday Other hours by appointment Free. Donations are appreciated 765-948-4555 James Dean Festival, September 26-28

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
