Want to solve a mystery? Every so often an artifact is on display in the Seymour Library, 161 East Avenue, Brockport, near the information desk and is posted simultaneously on the Brockport Community Museum website. Seeing the artifact in person at the library is best for determining what it is. There it can be viewed from different angles and distances (touching the artifact is not allowed). This is a continuing project, with the artifact being swapped out every two months.

Your Guess?

Prediction cards can be found near the exhibit display at the Seymour Library and on the “What’s It?” page at brockportcommunitymuseum.org. Fill out either card and return it to “Ye Olde Prediction Box” near the exhibit display. Eligibility is open to everyone. All entries must be received by Monday, September 23, 2019. Answers will be available near the exhibit display at the Seymour Library and published on the museum website around October 7, 2019 when the next artifact will go on display. There are no prizes, but winning entrants’ names will be posted (unless you indicate otherwise on the prediction card). The project is a collaboration between the Brockport Community Museum, Seymour Library, and Brockport Central School District.

The Brockport Community Museum (BCM) is a “Museum Without Walls” that brings local history into the community. The vision includes: Make local history accessible to the community at no cost. Develop awareness of community needs. Enable on-going resident participation. Find and preserve historic materials before they are lost. Support other local history repositories. The BCM website is: http://www.brockportcommunitymuseum.org.
