The Sippican Historical Society is pleased to announce the opening of a new on-site museum shop at 141 Front Street (Sippican Historical Society) offering a tempting assortment of goods and history-related items for all ages, including books, toys, stationery, masks, and more. The shop is located in the small room which originally housed Marion’s post office when Dr. Walton Nye Ellis (the town doctor) served as postmaster in the mid-19th century. Proceeds from the shop will help support the Historical Society’s commitment to serving Marion and the Tri-Town community through its collections, exhibitions, programs, and preservation efforts.
The shop’s official launch takes place on October 17 to celebrate both the installation of the Elizabeth Taber statue in Bicentennial Park and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The Historical Society will also host a rummage sale of children’s toys at the Sippican Historical Society, 141 Front St., on October 17 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.
The shop is open during the Museum’s regular fall hours, Thursdays and Saturdays, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
