A museum that has authenticity, as the new Pentwater museum has with the building having been in the village for 131 years, is far more interesting and engaging than a modern building full of replicas, he said.
He praised the spirit he’s seen in Pentwater.
“I can’t think of any place that, when they have a vision, they put it together so quickly,” Anderson said. “I’m not surprised it happened in Pentwater. The leadership in Pentwater made it happen. You are in a great community populated by great people. Congratulations.”
The keynote address was given by Pentwater Schools Superintendent Mary Marshall.
“Our village is filled with stories of families who came to this beautiful place.”
“Remembering and discovering is what this museum is all about,” she said.
It’s a place, she said, people can take a break to remember, to walk, to gain perspective.
“Take the time to remember,” she advised. “This museum provides a powerful opportunity to do that. My dad would have loved this place.”
