YMCA "treasures" on display
One hundred years ago, this Bible-themed painting was dedicated in the YMCA. It has been cleaned and restored and is now hanging in its temporary home at the TAHS Museum.
The Historical Society also has other treasures from the old "Y" including a time capsule, the cornerstone, and the safe.
The painting and other items from Tyrone's past can be seen at the Tyrone History Museum during regular hours throughout the fall.
