The Vintage Strings performance was wonderful.  We enjoyed having them at GOTHS.

Chairs from a Whitmore Lake Hotel

by Marilyn Harrington on 02/21/15

It was a pleasure for GOTHS to give three chairs to the Northfield Township Historical Society.  These three chairs according to our inventory had come from one of the Whitmore Lake Hotels.  They originally had been caned, but someone had worked really hard on them and replaced the caning with beautiful needle work.  The Northfield Society hopes to display at least one of the chairs at the Northfield Library.

Help with Returning Items to GOTHS

by Marilyn Harrington on 02/15/15

WOW!  Mike Nelson brought his big truck and helped us move several items back to GOTHS.  Bill Besso, Marilyn Harrington, Steve Harrington, Dave Huck, and Antoinette "T" Shelvey assisted Mike in moving the antiques.  Bill Besso used his truck to haul some items too.  We appreciate all their hard work on such a cold day.  (I knew Billy Lintner, would need the greenhouse for his plants soon, so I was trying to find a good day for moving.  I didn't really succeed as it was cold.) 

We also tried to sort the items we had in the greenhouse. We left several items behind to go in the June Garage Sale.  We don't have a lot of storage room at GOTHS.  Therefore keeping three or four ironing boards or washboards is not an option.

Returning Items to GOTHS

by Marilyn Harrington on 02/15/15

A special thank you to Hollow Oak Farm owned by Billy Lintner for allowing us to store some of our antiques in one of his green houses.  We thought the items would be stored for about a month.  Unfortunately it has been over  6 months.  Bill is allowing us to store items for our June Garage Sale.  Thank you Bill!!!
