New Windows Help Museum Prepare For 100th Birthday


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Back in July, workers took out some of the windows in the Twin Falls County Historical Museum.

Those banks of windows were on the south and west sides of the old Union School Building on Highway 30 near Curry Crossing. The windows were sent to Oregon to be restored, while local contractors worked on the window frames. Now slowly but surely, the windows are being reinstalled.

Mychel Matthews, Director of the Twin Falls County Historical Museum, "The windows are being painted, and that make take a while yet. They've got one bank finished, and with winter coming on, it's going to be a little slower. But hopefully by spring, everything's going to be great."

Matthews says they hope to have an "Adopt A Window" program for the panes that need to be replaced on the east side of the building. She says they're preparing for the building's 100th birthday in 2014.
