Speare Museum Changing Exhibit Case - located just inside the Speare's front entrance.
This month Robert Garneau is displaying his collection of U.S. 1st Day of issue commemorative stamps. And also on display is the world's first postage stamp. The scarce Penny Black. It was issued in Great Britain in 1840. Every collector's dream, so come in and see this rare stamp for yourself. Since Mr. Garneau's collection has grown extensively over the years this will be a "revolving" display.

Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 2 p.m. Motivating the WWII Home Front via Magazine and Radio Advertising
Our final program of the fall will compliment Veterans Day. Cal Knickerbocker will be talking about the advertising messages that were designed to inspire participation in the war effort. He will play many radio public service “spots,” as well as show and discuss a number of magazine ads which illustrate this concerted effort.
Free and open to the public.
