Description

The Hazeldine Museum is an Impressionist Sculpture Museum.

History

The Hazeldine Museum is a 3 story white brick building that has faded tan in the sun due to lack of upkeep these days. The weather has taken it tole on the once pristine hand carved brick columns that run from the 2nd to 3rd floors. There is a large bell tower atop the museum that is itself, one of the museum pieces from England. There also is a large fountain out front that starts flowing when the museum is powered.

It was built in the late 60's by a wealthy donor from Sussex, England named Harold Hazeldine. His great grandfather, Peter Heselden, settled in Malton taking a large art collection with him. The surname was changed when he immigrated to Malton. The collection was donated so that the people could see a little bit of old English history in this small corner of Malton. Among the original collection were a few dozen landscape paintings, the bell tower, numerous statues and busts, and a few historic weapons.

Around the mid 70's there was a lack of interest in this once popular museum. Then as fate would have it, next door the Shickell Drive Railway Station was built and the museum found life once more with tourists. Again in the early 80's there was another lapse in interest. To draw in more attention the museum curator, George Burns, purchased a large Impressionist Sculpture collection. He also expanded the gift shop to enormous proportions and purchased what seems to be millions of exact replicas with hopes that tourists would take some history home with them. But the outbreak happened and the floor is littered with tons of sculptures and nobody can ever be sure if they have the original or a replica now... Who knows, maybe if you search around, you might find one that looks a little older than the rest...  :)
