The Cole Bible
In 1849 Amos Swan opened a melodeon factory in Cherry Valley. The melodeons were shipped to Fort Plain NY and sent out by railroad. During the Civil War Ogden Eldrige bought the melodeon factory from Swan and also open a second factory in the village. Below are 2 of the melodeons currently on display at the museum. Although they are just for display, they both work.
