Wildlife Exhibit at the Taber Museum

August 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society cordially invites the public to attend a viewing of its summer exhibit, during First Friday, August 4, 2023, from 6-8 pm. “In the Wilds of Pennsylvania and Beyond” includes taxidermy-mounted specimens and artwork from the permanent collections of the museum, as well as the meticulous renderings of animals by well-known artist John Strawbridge.

The exhibit includes animals familiar to residents of Pennsylvania including a racoon, a bear cub, a fawn, a turkey, and native birds. The mounted specimens were expertly preserved by Williamsport taxidermist Charles Eldon (1852-1930).  Eldon opened his shop in 1878 in Williamsport and continued his practice well into the Twentieth Century. The artwork from the permanent collection includes a mixture of prints and paintings.
