Stoughton & District Museum
A visit to the Stoughton and District museum is a must. Over 2500 artifacts are yours for the viewing, from historical photographs to children’s toys.
There are theme displays including an early-day kitchen, front room and bedroom. If you are lucky, you may even arrive on time for one of our demonstration days when various pioneer activities are reenacted.
You’ll want to meet Jim, crafted in the image of Jimmy Hales, who for decades owned and operated our local barber shop. His real claim to fame, though, wasn’t his hair cuts but the skin lotion he sent from coast to coast in long-necked brown beer bottles for the treatment of various skin conditions. Yes! It really worked but the formula remains a mystery to this day.
There’s a general store, church, veterinary and medical equipment. For the curling buffs a collection of artifacts from the Curling Richardsons plus much much more.
