The Cape River Heritage's new exhibits include local outstanding blacks and their effect on the community. University graduate students under the direction of Dr. Bonnie Stepenoff developed the exhibit.

Tools and household items of the late William George Bock are new to the museum. They were donated by his grandson, Lewis Bock.

A display of Roberts, Johnson and Rand brands will mark the 100th anniversary of the International Shoe Co. This collection belongs to Neil And Dr. Alberta Dougan.

Regular museum hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday or by appointment for special tours. Schools, Scouts and clubs are all welcome for tours.
