Museum Receives Doll Collection

LABELLE, FL. -- Carla Bradley of Brooksille, Fl. visiited her great great grandfather F. A. Hendry's home with local museum president Joe Thomas during her recent visit to LaBelle to donate Hendry family memorabilia to LaBelle Heritage Museum. 

Mrs. Bradley donated 18 handmade dolls from her great grandmother Virginia Lee Hendry Menge to the local museum that will be placed on display once they are cataloged and necessary repairs that will not destroy their integrity are made. Other Hendry family items donated to the local museum include Mrs. Bradley's grandmother Nettie Pearl Menge Battey's last Holy Bible and copies of family papers that will be added to the museum's Hendry family archives.
