SHERIDAN - The Sheridan Historical Society has scheduled a special program for the public on 7 p.m. Monday in the Community Room of the Sheridan Public Library.
Many people are already aware that the Society has recently purchased the old Hippodrome Theater Building across the street from the current museum and is busy converting it into the new museum.
As a part of that conversion process there are lots of memories and many questions about what Sheridan's Main Street was comprised of and what it looked like 60 years ago.
Society members have asked former resident Pat Pickett to come and share his memories and a few photographs with the community.
Many older community members will remember Pat Pickett's father Noel purchased the Hippodrome and converted it into a variety store. One of the mysteries the Society hopes to solve at the Monday program is what was housed in the Hippodrome building before it was converted to a movie theater. If you know, please come to this program and enlighten us all.
Pickett has lots of memories and great stories about the theater as well as other Main Street haunts and hang-outs.
Multiple photographs of Sheridan will be shown depicting Main Street through the ages. The public is cordially invited to attend this free program and be part of the memory sharing that will take place.
Society President Ron Stone will be present and be able to give audience members an update on the progress being made as the building is re-purposed to house the new Sheridan Historical Society Museum.
The old museum has outgrown its current home and the move to the larger venue across the street will afford an opportunity to provide much more display space and give badly needed storage space for all the artifacts.
This is planned to be a fun meeting with lots of reminiscing taking place and light refreshments will be served. There will be lots of time for questions and answers and the sharing of old memories of times past.
