Eaton Corner Museum looking for renewed support amid financial challenges

By Gordon Lambie

At the end of January, the Compton County Historical Museum Society, known by many simply as the Eaton Corner Museum, published a financial campaign letter thanking donors and supporters from over the years while also putting out a renewed call for help in what is referred to as a “precarious situation.” According to Sharon Moore, Vice-President of the CCHMS/Eaton Corner Museum Board of Directors, a large part of the financial challenge stems from the loan taken out to cover the purchase of the historic Foss House property in the summer of 2012. Although the acquisition of the additional building allowed for a number of improvements to the work of the museum, Moore explained that since the loan was taken out, the society has never been able to pay down any of the capital.
