High school seniors have been participating in commencement exercises in Oswego since the very first class graduated from Oswego High School in 1887.

This year, friends and relatives of seniors in the Oswego School District’s two high schools will congratulate the members of the Class of 2014, and to mark that achievement, the Little White School Museum is offering visitors a special temporary exhibit, “Celebrating the ‘4s,’” from Friday, May 16, through mid-June. The museum is located at 72 Polk Street (Jackson at Polk), Oswego.

This year’s special exhibit was created by museum manager Tina Heidrich and features memorabilia from school years ending in 4, from the graduation announcement of the OHS Class of 1904 to the 1944, 1954, and 1964 Oswego High School yearbooks. Included are, among other items from the museum’s collections; class photos; photos of OHS sports teams of days gone by; and more.

Regular museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.Admission to the museum is free, but donations are always gratefully accepted.

For more information on the special exhibit, call the museum at 630-554-2999 during regular hours, send an e-mail to info@littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org, or check the museum web site at www.littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org.
