"Walk down the streets of time in Marshfield." - Marshfield Heritage Museum

T he exhibits at the Marshfield Heritage Museum periodically change, with each one focusing on a different historical topic as it relates to Marshfield. Due to the scope and magnitude of each exhibit, displays are occasionally retired from public viewing to make room for the new ones. In the future, we will be expanding to include the history of Marshfield in a community museum. This will take place immediately after the new library is constructed. Featured on this page are the exhibits that are no longer on display.

[ Exhibit ran through February 2009. ]

"During the Depression years, many hours were spent with family and friends gathered around the parlor piano or organ. Music was a major source of pleasure. One might think Christmas was a sad time during those years, but even in the toughest of times, it was a season of faith, wonder and warmth."
