New! – Thursday Evening Farmers’ Market
Visit the Museum on Thursday evenings, from 5 to 8 PM, from May through September, and see the new farmers’ market we are hosting on our front lawn. The offerings are constantly changing, and will expand as the season warms up. We have already hosted booths selling pottery, jewelry, coffee, and barbecued chicken.
Dressing Up, Dressing Down
Come explore our new exhibit, “Dressing Up: Women’s Fashion Through the Gilded Age” curated by Hampshire College thesis student Molly O’Donnell! This exhibit examines the dichotomy of public/private presentation through an exploration of women’s ‘house’ and ‘street’ clothes throughout the 19th century! This is your chance to see a beautifully curated collected of dresses from our clothing collection all on display at once, and learn about the evolution of women’s fashion in 19th century America.
