The exhibit is the work of Bill Knepp and is a huge collection of very fine quality Aladdin lamps from 1926 to about 1952. The exhibit contains almost two hundred electric and kerosene lamps. Bill has labeled each lamp with name and year. This is such a high quality and variety of lamps that it has become a "must see" display. To really see this exhibit, you will need to come several times. Visitors will be escorted to the exhibit area.
The exhibit is free to everyone in the community. It is for you and your family; that's why we do it! For more information and/or questions, please call us at (765) 683-0052 during public hours. Thank you!
