Last night we unveiled the new Henry Wheeler collection display. It was great event. You can now view the .50 caliber Smith Carbine Wheeler used to help stop the James-Younger Gang during the failed 1876 bank raid. You can also see the gold pocket watch Wheeler was given by the First National Bank of Northfield for his role in the raid; and the pistol Wheeler carried with him for the rest of his life in fear the Miller family would retaliate.
Thank you to the First National Bank of Northfield for funding the production of the display case. Finally, a BIG thank you to Norman Oberto and his family for purchasing the collection and loaning it to NHS! We are very happy the collection is home!
NHS is open seven days a week, Monday-Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 1-5.
