The Huddy Museum was founded by the congregation at St. Celestine's Church in the early 1920's when the church received a large sum in the will of a recently deceased member. The presiding pastor, seeing the lack of proper Christian education amongst the children of Wyke Hills, decided to create a Museum of Christian artifacts from across Europe. Pieces of relics and the body parts of saints were displayed in ornately designed glass cases, giving one a sense of over-bearing grandeur. Each display had a lengthy plaquered describing the various miracles related to each item. The museum was also well known for the massive library of religious texts located in the basement. Although not the largest in Malton, it contained some of the rarest tomes of Christian lore. Among these tomes was an infamous book called "The Gospel According to Mary," a series of stories relating to Jesus' life as seen by Mary Magdeline. In the late 1970's however, this museum came under attack after the death of the former pastor and the induction of a new one. This new pastor created sweeping reforms in the museum in an effort to bring in crowds. After selling the entire collection of items on chastity (ironically) he converted that section of the building to a display of the "evils of pornographic materials." In actuality, this was a lure for young men and lonely older men in the form that life-sized pictures of naked women were displayed in the dark room were red lights shone on the images. Live poll dancing was performed there on Sundays. In an effort to "abolish this sinful place from the face of the God's Creation," a foursome of crazed women set themselves on fire and ran through the building. The Malton Fire Department managed to put out the blaze without major damage to the structure, but most of the artifacts were ruined and the entire library was burned to ashes. The Museum was abandoned until the early 2000's when a third pastor at the church decided to attempt to bring the museum back into business. But before the major organization of the project began, it was tipped off track by the outbreak.
