INSIDE THE FLX: Tracy Murphy of Historic Palmyra discusses rebuilding the Coverlet Museum after the fire, Palmyra in its heyday and how you can help (podcast)

In this episode, we talk with Tracy Murphy from Historic Palmyra.


In November, a fire damaged the Alling Coverlet Museum, the flagship facility of Historic Palmyra, which houses one of the largest collections of antique, hand-woven coverlets in existence. We talked about the extent of the damage, the effort to rebuild, a Facebook page where you can help, and plans to reopen in the spring.

We also talked about the other four museums of Historic Palmyra, the community’s heyday as a thriving stop along the Erie Canal and how Historic Palmyra came to have a general store that looks exactly as it did on its last day of operation.

I also learned about the ghosts of Palmyra’s past that haunt some of the properties at night.
