The landmark has been a meeting place outside the museum since it was moved there in 1977.
According to the museum, the 40-foot tall milk bottle was built in 1934 by Arthur Gagner to sell his homemade ice cream in Taunton. It was a landmark on Route 44 until it was abandoned in 1967. Hood had it fixed up and then donated it to the museum.MORE NEWS: Tony Hawk's Foundation Donates $10,000 To Skatepark In Leominster That Honors Teen Killed By Hit-And-Run
