  • Bed warmer at the Orange Historical Society museum. Hot coals were placed inside the metal warmer. The warmer was rubbed between the sheets before bedtime to warm up the bed. This was necessary when bedrooms were not heated. The Orange Historical Society is located at 41 N. Main St. Due to COVID-19, the museum is currently closed, but new members are always welcome. Information can be found on the society’s website at  Staff photo/Paul Franz
