A reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. will be held at the museum at 95 S. Main St. The celebration will follow an event earlier in the day at Beaver in Davis' honor.
The collection was started on Davis' first day at the post office when local artist and Beaver resident Tommy Thomas brought her an oil of the bridge painted in 1946 by Trew Hocker. Then Thomas, himself an artist who served variously as mayor and alderman of Beaver for several years, brought a drawing of the bridge done by him. And so, the collection began.
The public is invited to the opening on the 13th. Thereafter, normal admission will apply except for museum members. For more information or for membership information, please call museum director Ginni Miller at 253-9417.
