CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - The city of Claremont, New Hampshire, is presenting a special exhibit in honor of its 250th anniversary.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1ipcqOx) the Claremont Historical Society Museum’s “Made in Claremont” room is showing lots of assorted memorabilia.

“We’re adding memorabilia from businesses in town, from the ‘40s, ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Some are still in business, some are out of business. These are things that have come down through the years,” said exhibit organizer Nancy Milville.

Visitors also can see the oldest picture taken of the city, dated Oct. 2, 1856, and Civil War items. There’s also a Stevens High School cheerleading uniform from the 1960s on display.

“A lot of people get a kick out of the stuffed animals,” said Claremont Historical Society President Wayne McElreavy, pointing out a stuffed albino crow.

The museum is open on Saturdays, from 1 to 4 p.m., through Sept. 13.
