A remarkable collection of history that reminds us of this town's beginnings. Promotes continued education with weekly lectures and meetings. New centralized location will enable this gem to be noticed more by the public.

Was impressed with all the old pictures of the past 100+ years. The then and now pictures of old houses were very interesting. Glad the museum is keeping our past alive and available for all to see and cherish.

Congratulations to the Stone Harbor Museum on opening a beautiful facility! It is a must see for everyone who visits or lives in Stone Harbor. I have personally recommended visits to my friends. My family loves to visit and see the new displays. Bruce, Teri, Randy, Patty, Kathy, and Bob – you did a great job. I wish you much success!

like other nonprofits of this type they have a specific mission. The problem is having the ability to maximize the limited available resources. This organization has reached out to the community they serve to seek volunteer expert advice on all matters. As an architect, I have been brought in on many occasions to help with finding a new home that could better serve the museum's mission. Their ability to keep to their mission while serving as a valuable asset to the community has been outstanding.

From a collection of artifacts and archives crowded in a century old cottage unsuitable for preservation of our borough history, a group of dedicated volunteer board members have managed to purchase a property well-suited to the needs of a museum and in a much more conspicuous location. Necessary work to repurpose this former art gallery to become a museum has been done by these dedicated board members. The increased number of visitors during this first season at the new location has indicated that the mission of the Stone Harbor Museum to collect,preserve and display the history of the town is being accomplished. It has been a rewarding experience to be part of this vibrant group of volunteers.

Great museum focused on displaying the history of this seashore gem! The leaders and volunteers are dedicated to an excellent visitor experience. The summer lectures focus on topics of local interest. It's a great place to visit while on vacation!

I was working as a docent in our new home last week when an older lady walked into the museum with a favorite picture she wanted to share with us. It turned out that she had been coming to our shore town for 86 of her 92 years and she was thrilled to see the museum. Even though the museum was crowded with visitors on that rainy day I was able to sit with her and listen to her tell of walking the boardwalk (washed away in ’44) as a teenager and being told to put out their cigarettes by Coast Guardsmen because German subs could spot them. She had a dozen other great stories and she offered to sit for an oral history next week.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

A wonderful place to see & learn the past of Stone Harbor. Charming but very small. They sure could use more space to exhibit their many interesting items. Don't miss this.
