Children tour the recently renovated Native American room at the depot museum at Wilson Brewer Historic Park. The museum set up several new pieces last week and rearranged their displays. The museum cycles through pieces every couple months and recently put displays and pieces from their storage. Many of the items on display have been at the museum since the 1930s. The display will be available for viewing during the museum’s regular hours, and also during Heritage Day Aug. 25.

Magician Larry Dunbar is scheduled to perform from 1 to 2 p.m.

Boy Scout Troop 17 will serve lunch during the event as a fundraiser.
