The Midway Museum has temporarily closed its doors after the sudden retirement of long-time curators Joann Clark and Dianne Clark Behrens.
According to a press release from Tina Eberlein, interim chairwoman of the Midway Museum’s Board of Governors, the board met Oct. 21, to discuss the many changes that have been happening at the Midway Museum.
Eberlein said, “The retirement of the long-time curator, Joann Clark, and assistant curator, Dianne Clark Behrens, has created a sad departure from the Midway Museum and the board will forever be grateful for their hard work and preservation of Midway’s history. Due to these retirements and the necessary planning and reorganization, the museum has been closed since Oct. 1.”
Eberlein said that a search committee is actively searching for a new curator and volunteers, and they hope to reopen the museum Dec. 1.
“The board will be hosting Tales and Legends this Friday at 5 p.m.,” Eberlein’s release reads.
She said participants will meet in front of the Old Midway Church and Liberty County High School and Bradwell Institute history students will serve as tour guides.
She said the annual Christmas Tea is still set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 11.
“Any question can be sent to Tina Eberlein at or call 884-3726,” Eberlein said.
