Museum offers look at former Springfield High School days


With the beginning of a new school year, area residents can return to Springfield High School Aug. 30 by visiting The Bergholz Area Museum from 12:30-3:30 p.m. The featured collection includes

class pictures, yearbooks and an assortment of memorabilia. A collection of school books dating back to the late 1870s is also on display. A variety of other new materials have been added to the museum’s permanent collection thanks to the generosity of several current and former area residents. The permanent collection also includes pictures and memorabilia related to area communities, schools, local mines and various businesses. The museum is normally open the first Sunday of each month May through November. The schedule change was made due to the Labor Day holiday. The Bergholz Area Museum is located at the corner of 2nd and Jefferson streets across from the town parking lot. Admission is free.
