Although Oswego’s Little White School Museum is closed due to the on-going worldwide pandemic, area residents can still make virtual visits.

Currently, the museum is featuring a huge special exhibit, “At Home in Oswego’s Past, that invites everyone to find out how our great-grandparents lived during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The exhibit will help visitors discover the home life of Oswego’s 19th and 20th Century using rarely-seen photographs, documents, and artifacts selected from the museum’s extensive collections.

The extensive home life exhibit was curated by museum volunteer Stephanie Just with the assistance of assistant museum director Bob Stekl and museum staffer Sarah Kimes.

“Our series of special exhibits mounted in-house give is a chance to pull a number of our seldom-seen artifacts, documents, and photographs out of storage for the community to enjoy,” explained museum director Roger Matile. “And the special traveling exhibits we bring to the community help enhance the story we tell of the Oswego area’s rich history.”

“At Home in Oswego’s Past” will be available on-line 24 hours a day throughout this summer free of charge. If the museum is allowed to open this summer, the exhibit will be available daily during regular hours, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Museum admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.

The Little White School Museum operates under a joint partnership between the not-for-profit Oswegoland Heritage Association and the Oswegoland Park District.
