sykesville_gatehouseIn an effort to reach attract new visitors and entice them to return, Sykesville’s Gatehouse Museum will be expanding its exhibits in the coming months.

The expansion is possible due to a recent increase in volunteers, which has given the museum’s curator, Errol Smith, an opportunity to change exhibits every few weeks.

Next month, the museum plans to display new exhibits, including a hands-on toy collection and a feature on life in early twentieth-century Sykesville. The museum also plans to host a special Civil War celebration on September 26 from 1-4 pm. The event will include a performance by the Late Unpleasantness Players, a group of re-enactors from the Pipe Creek Civil War Roundtable of Carroll County.

The museum is also seeking donations, particularly Civil War-era artifacts. Donations do not need to be permanent and may be returned.

The Sykesville Gatehouse Museum is open 10 am – 5pm on Mondays and Wednesdays 1-4 pm on Sundays.
