The Museum Fountain Shoppe at 207 Main Street sells New-Windsor-themed pottery, tote bags, mugs, notecards, holiday ornaments, books, postcards, etc., including a comical postcard showing old timers standing with their trusted burrow and wooden cart in view of the old Dielman Inn gives you ”Greetings from Your Old Friends in New Windsor.”

Once we resume regular hours, we will be open some Saturdays, from 10:00 to 1:00, but rely on volunteers to staff the Museum, so if you have a question about the Fountain Shoppe, call and leave a message at 410-635-2602 or email us at
