Twenty-five years adds more than a few wrinkles and the Lillian E. Jones Museum is no exception.
Even in the midst of this year of pandemic the Jones Museum has continued to add newness to Jackson County’s home for history, culture and education.
Now the Jones Museum offers a continuously updating of its collections through our digital archives. At this point in the 25th anniversary year, the digital archives include more than 500 of the thousands of items that have been donated since 1995.
The newest wrinkle is an audio component to the archives which adds a voice to further connect life to the items inside the museum. The first 20 recordings can be accessed by calling 740-263-6964 and entering a prompt number when instructed. Prompt numbers are below and more recordings are being added weekly.
