Plumbing Museum Relocates
The Plumbing Museum - founded in the 1970s by the family of Russell Manoog, Manoog Supply in Worcester, Mass. - is being moved to a renovated icehouse at the Watertown, Mass., company headquarters of J.C. Cannistraro, headed by John Cannistraro Jr.
The museum (www.theplumbingmuseum.org), which is scheduled to open in fall 2008, will have displays outlining the history of the plumbing industry, with examples of tools/materials/fixtures from various periods: early 18th century; Victorian period; early 20th century; contemporary, etc. It also will have full examples of the structure of a “typical” modern-day plumbing system, such as exposed piping of a three-family home.
