Object of the month - March 2016
This month’s “Object Of The Month” is an article from the Bucks Examiner covering the opening of Amersham Museum at 49 High Street, 25 years ago this month.
The museum was created in what is believed to be the oldest house in the town, by the Amersham Society, after 35 years of collecting objects, fund raising, and restoration of the building, which had become dilapidated following two years of standing empty.
Previously, exhibitions had been held in the Market Hall and in a room loaned by the British Legion at their Whielden Street premises.
The museum was formally opened by the Earl Howe, with Eric Corns, Chairman of the Amersham Society and Mayor of Amersham, thanking all those who had brought about this momentous day.
The full story is told in words, pictures and objects in a special exhibition within the museum; for opening hours please see the left-hand side of this page.”
