A simple gift came with a surprise recently when Crossroads Carnegie Art Center gave a glass cabinet to the Baker Heritage Museum.
Turns out it wasn’t the only one of its kind.
“Unbeknownst to us, its matched partner is at the museum,” said Ginger Savage, Crossroads director.
The display case was originally used at the Neuberger and Heilner department store on Main Street.
When Crossroads moved into that space, the case was used as the front counter.
