After 55 years of business and a few owners later, the decision was made to close the museum and make room for retail space. The original owner of the museum was Cliff Arquette, better known as the famous Charlie Weaver. Many of the items in this museum came from the Jenny Wade Museum, which operated from 1900-1970. Both auctions held with no reserve selling prices. A wonderful opportunity to purchase a piece of history from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
