Main Street Museum

Creating Hartford
The Main Street Museum, located in the heart of downtown White River Junction, is filled with bizarre and fascinating exhibits that will tantalize the mind. A few of these include Elvis’s gall stones, silt from the 1927 flood, local art and unidentified mammals. The director of the museum, David Ford, recently visited the inauguration of President Barack Obama and picked up some dirt from the historic event location. This relic is now on exhibit at the museum. This building was built starting in November 1893 and cost $1,474.22. The building was originally a fire station. The fire station was remodeled in 1919 and was transformed into the two story building it is today. The second story housed the fire chief. During the devastating flood of November 1927 the building was damaged considerably by flood waters. The museum today not only boasts unique artifacts, but also bands and musicians have been known to perform. One will be sure to enjoy his or her visit.
