Halstead Heritage Museum & Depot
The Halstead Heritage Museum is divided into two main galleries - formerly the depot waiting rooms. The east room holds The Charles Basore Gallery which contains permanent exhibits that give a brief overview of Halstead history. A life-long resident of the area, Mr. Basore was a collector and historian who shared his enthusiasm and love for local history through collections in his personal museum near Bently. The west room contains The Lehman-Dreese Gallery which is designed to house rotating exhibits. This gallery was named in recognition of the faithful and generous support given to the Halstead Historical Society by Gladys Dreese. A large percentage of the Society's artifacts came from Miss Dreese's personal collection of family memorabilia.
