The Phillips Historical Society Museum is located at 8 Pleasant Street. It is the former home of the Vose family. Built in 1829 for Captain Joel Whitney, it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum holds many fascinating collections from the early settlement of the community and through the years of the railroad into the late 20th century.
During the winter months the PHS museum is closed, but the volunteers are still working. Next year promises to be full of new displays and stories.
Make sure to schedule a visit!
The second floor master bedroom is getting a long overdo "facelift".
Over the winter and early spring volunteers are scrapping, painting and wall papering. Ceiling has been professionally replaced.
We will keep you posted on our progress!
Considered "modern" for its day, this wood burning cookstove was vital for its efficient use of wood fuel.
This huge stove dominates the PHS kitchen. Several cooking items are displayed on the stove including a handwritten recipe book.
We love our visitors from near and far, so feel free to come by during open house hours.
