The Museum, or library as it was originally known, now houses mill memorabilia including antique baking accessories, cookie cutters and anniversary Dresden china plates which were given to customers by the mill. After World War II, Dresden plates were replaced with American-made china until they also stopped in 1952.
Erhard’s silver-plated trophy from the Casino Club Bowling Team of 1897 is also located in the Museum; as is a beautiful hand-carved Victorian marble-top table, a gift to Erhard and his wife, Lottie Hamisch Guenther. An alabaster and brass ceiling fixture has been returned to its original place in the Museum, as well.
The hallway between the Museum and The River Mill Store was Originally the home’s front door entry way. A silver-plated, gas-lit chandelier originally located in another house on the mill property has been placed in The Guenther House. The stained glass door and side lights that is now the entrance to the ladies’ room reflect the miller’s trade at that time.
