Staff Favorite Additions to the Collection

Staff members will present their favorite new additions to the Museum’s collection in 2019.  This year the items will include suffrage era ladies clothing, a very special printing press plate, a volcano emergency plan, a letterman’s sweater just to name a few.

Our special guest presenter, Maggie Watson, Museum Curator Bill Watson’s wife and vintage clothing expert, will discuss suffrage era clothing.  Maggie assisted in the curation and installation of much of the current exhibit, Votes for Women.
Doors open at 6:30, program begins at 7.
