Unique Items from the Collection

The Gouverneur Museum is more than just a repository for old objects. Every object was a prop in the lives of people who lived in the Gouverneur area. They link the past to our present. Unraveling history takes patient investigation and the right questions. What might seem to be just a "dusty old thing" might tell us something unexpected about the people who owned, used, and might have even loved that object when it was new and shiny.
