Heather Whitman, curator at the Highlands Museum, talks about the new Paul Blazer exhibit.
ASHLAND A new exhibit at the Highlands Museum & Discovery Center provides a plethora of information about the life and times of Paul G. Blazer.
“He provided for a quality of life here in Ashland and I think it’s something we need to think about and appreciate,” said Carol Allen, director at the museum. “His influence has touched the lives, and quality of life, of a lot of people in our area.”
Museum Curator Heather Whitman said the exhibit features a lot of historic documentation of Blazer’s life from his report cards to photos and even an old Ashland Oil service station uniform.
“This exhibit studies the life of one of Ashland’s finest,” the museum said. “With artifacts related to Ashland Oil and personal pieces from the Blazer family, learn about Blazer’s life and his influence on industry and education.”
The exhibit runs through October. The museum is at 1620 Winchester Ave. It is open Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
