SVM Seeking Historical Items for Exhibit on Slate Industry
Who were the people who started the slate industry? What were the leading slate moguls lives like? How did they influence the community? Where are their descendants today? These are a few questions Slate Valley Museum (SVM) executive director Krista Rupe is researching for an exhibit opening in March, which will delve into the stories of these hardworking pioneers, whose rise to wealth and prominence as cultural leaders will be documented though artifacts, family photos and documents. SVM is asking anyone who knows a piece of the puzzle to share it. You can contact Rupe by emailing [email protected], or give her a call at 518-642-1417.
