June 6th, 2014--South Hero Historical Society Program--Do You Know Your Tools?

The SHHS June 6th Program took place at the Tool Museum at Apple Island Resort off Route 2 by the sandbar. We are glad so many oif you had a chance to see this marvelous museum and got to meet Ted Ingrahm, proprietor. We all enjoyed the window sash demonstartion, the “Guess the Mystery Tool” part of the program and the open house viewing of the collection beforehand. The Arnold Zlotoff Tool Museum collection includes 3,000 pieces originating from the colonial period in the Northeastern United States. The collection encompasses a vast variety of trades, industries, and applications. It was effectively the result of the passion of one man, Arnold Zlotoff. Arnold was a New York City school teacher of Industrial Arts and a skilled mechanic, thereby developing his interest in tools. He was impressed by the craftsmanship of the early Americans, many of whom fashioned tools themselves or collaborated with local blacksmiths, who would serve as tool makers. He began collecting in the late 1940s and continued into the 1980s. His family purchased the barn at Apple Island Resort which is now home to his collection. Please join us on Friday, June 6th at 6:30 for some free exploration time and at 7:00 for our program. The museum is open every Saturday, Memorial Day to Columbus Day, 10:00 am-4:00 pm, free admission. Here is their website
