The Eric Sloane Museum in Kent will present a program about the journey from a town dump to a picturesque destination point May 18 at 11 a.m.

Bill Toobin, Kent's first selectman at the time, who was an active participant along with the state governor and Eric Sloane himself, will lead the discussion.

Dan Forrest, archaeologist from the state Historic Preservation Office, will provide insights on how discarded objects from the past can become contemporary treasures that help unlock the life and times of not just the people, but a specific location, such as the Eric Sloane Museum site.

The museum is at 31 Kent-Cornwall Road (Route 7).
