LVPS Acquires General Store

Long Valley Preservation Society is thrilled to announce its purchase of the McDougal General Store from Frank Eld to be part of the Valley County Museum at Roseberry! Funding for the purchase came from the Nasi Trust, a fund dispersed by Valley County for parks in the county. Thank you, Valley County Commissioners!

The store will remain a general store, with different inventory and exhibits. It will feature a heroes wall dedicated to the Eld and Nasi families, as well as other people who have contributed so much to Roseberry. There will be displays of what a child’s life would look like in Roseberry in the early 1900s, and we will have turn-of-the-century games to check out to play on the lawns at Roseberry, including croquet, badminton, and hoops and sticks. We are looking forward to receiving input from visitors on what additional inventory to carry and what items to exhibit!

The Long Valley Preservation Society has been able to purchase only a few of Frank Eld’s wonderful collection of antiques. We are asking that people consider coming to the auction of the antiques on August 15th and purchase an antique to donate back to the store.
