If you did not get to see the Mourning Exhibit our Interns put up in the Formal Parlor, go to our Facebook page. They had examples of the traditions the Victorians used during a funeral. There was even an 1890’s coffin!

The Costume Room is filled with military uniforms and other items. See Virginia Davis-Brown’s article in this issue and come and see this exhibit which is a tribute to the men and women who have served in our military.

The Dow House is decorated for the holidays. Robert (Bob) Taylor’s lighted firehouses are displayed in the Library. Jane Schmiedeke loaned us 19 interesting antique Santas which are on display in the kitchen. Eileen Harrison crafted the clothespin characters displayed in the upstairs hallway. The Children’s Room has cute kids in red flannel and some “new” toys.

We need docents, especially for the weekends! Call 482-4990.
