The Chester Historical Society is inviting the public to a special “Closing the Season Celebration,” which includes an evening of free admission to Chester Museum at The Mill.  “It’s our way to thank the community for its longtime support of the Society, including our opening of the new museum on May 1,” said President Skip Hubbard. “We have been especially pleased with the enthusiastic comments from our visitors.”
The weekend opens with a “Closing the Barn Door” Reception and Barn Art sale from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, October 29.  Come and enjoy refreshments and Chester barn scenes produced by our own great Chester artists.  Visit the museum for free, plus get a jump start on great holiday presents.  Artists are donating 50% of the proceeds to the Museum. 
Chester Museum at The Mill, including the Barn Art exhibit and sale, will also be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat., October 30 and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, the last day of its successful first season. With the exception of the two days following Thanksgiving, the museum will be closed until May 2011 to allow for creation of new exhibits.
