The Fish Fry is a major fund raiser for our museum as we depend solely on public financial support. We receive no local government funding, but the county does support the museum by allowing us public space for meetings and the historic clerk's office where the museum has created an exhibit in the original clerk's office of P.T. Woodward, who saved our county records from being burnt during the Civil War. in addition, the county reliefs the museum from paying property taxes. The Middlesex County Museum & Historical Society's mission is to preserved, acquire and educate the public concerning the significance of our local history dating back to 1642.
Saturday, November 4th, we will be at the Urbanna Oyster Festival in front of Lansdowne selling books related to local history and historic maps.
