Sandra Hoekstra recently donated five display cases to the Thomaston Historical Society.

“This allows the company to significantly expand the exhibits that we will have in our museum,” said Historical Society President Susan Devlin. “With the help of several volunteers, we are searching our archives to identify new Thomaston stories to tell. ohne in the works is the story behind some vintage clothing; another is a display of the beginning of the 20e Century medical equipment recently received from the estate of Dr. Everett Hodgkins. Additionally, we now have a place to tell the story of the recent archaeological dig near the museum which included remains likely from the Montpellier landfill area.

Sandra Hoekstra recently closed her bookstore to focus on more profitable online sales of antique, collectible and rare books, which is her main focus.

Anyone interested in helping the historical society develop new exhibits or who has items that would tell a Thomaston story can contact the historical society at [email protected]. Book collectors can find out more about what Sandra Hoekstra has to offer at slhbookseller.com.
