 Nigh Agora
Explore our newest permanent exhibit in the Carriage House on the grounds of the museum. The exhibit showcases artifacts from a country museum on Pinecrest Road started in 1989 by Mildred Nigh which she called Nigh Agora Museum. She was inspired to create the little museum by the early handcrafted tools, utensils, baskets and more discovered on the farm she and her husband had purchased in 1972 from the Knisley family. The Nigh Agora exhibit celebrates the century farm and history of the Knisley family, and the dedication of Mildred Nigh in preserving this part of local history.
