Outside museum display honors Class of 2020 at Middletown Area High School


An outside exhibit commemorating the Middletown Area High School Class of 2020 has been set up at the Middletown Area Historical Society museum at 29 E. Main St.

The exhibit features historical information about previous Middletown high school graduating classes going back to photos and information about the first class in 1876.

Much of the exhibit is dedicated to information about the classes from each year of the 1920s. You can find commencement programs from those years, class rolls, and more.

The exhibit will stay up for about a month, said Jenny Miller, a member of the society board of trustees. “In the meantime we will come up with another idea to do something else” in the outdoor exhibit space.

The society has been looking for ways to better connect with the public since the museum has been closed since March due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

The society also plans to soon begin posting videos showcasing Middletown history dating back to 1755, through the society’s Facebook page.
