June 3 , 11:00 am 1:00 pm

For the first time since 2019, we are re-opening the Museum’s permanent exhibit Steam to Gasoline! In celebration, the first monthly Collections Corner workshop will feature a recently donated collection of steamboat ephemera related to Lake Champlain steamboat captain Calvin Grant Edson, who piloted 20th-century Champlain Transportation Co. steamboats. Descendants of Captain Edson will share family stories during the program.
