9. Dean's Tool Shed

Donated by the Phil Klotz family, this building houses many old tools collected by Dean Garber.  The old shed was given to the Museum on August 24, 1996 and was renovated as a proper venue for the vintage tools.  The building was dedicated in September of 1998.  This collection spans decades of tool collecting and symbolizes 100 years of handmade tools.  Other tools have been added to the archive over the years, to help enhance the collection.  In 2015, a two stall garage was relocated to the Museum and placed behind the tool shed. This building was donated by Tom and Marcia Parcell!  This building will serve as an addition to the tool shed and will house the two lathes that are currently in the Memories Building.
