W'burg museum to host local interviews

On Sunday, April 17, a special event will be held at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local history from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for those interested in the museum's ongoing exhibit, "Stock Car Racing at Ashland Park." Additional photos and artifacts have been added since the February opening of the stock car exhibit. The Warrensburgh Historical Society will be video-recording informal conversations about these historic events, which took place in Warrensburg between 1952 and the early 1960s. Refreshments will be served.

In other developments, the museum organizers are now seeking out photographs of the Warren Theatre and the Fairyland Theatre for a mini-exhibit on Warrensburg entertainment. They are also looking for photos of Warrensburg shops from any period, for the museum's files. The museum is open each Wednesday and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. plus the first Thursday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m.

The museum is located in the VFW building at 3754 Main St. The entrance and parking are at the rear of the building. Admission is free.
