Museum Exhibits

Connect to local history through our various exhibits. We are constantly adding to and changing our displays as we acquire new objects and research new ideas.

 
 

Traveling Exhibits

Every three months we load up a car with some of our treasures and take to the road. We will travel to the public libraries in Rolfe, Pocahontas and Laurens to set up special displays from September to May. Look below to see what is currently on exhibit.

Headlines and Footnotes

We searched our collections to find lots of hats and shoes. From a pair of shoes worn to see the Queen of England to a "bouffant topper" worn over a beehive hair-do, this display has interesting tidbits for the head and feet.

Let Us Entertain You

Back in the day, folks were very good at doing just that. Come see our collection of games, crafts, and other artifacts used to pass the time. Perhaps you'll get some ideas for yourself.

Gone But Not Forgotten

In this display, you'll learn about customs associated with death and mourning in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  Touching true stories of the untimely deaths of an infant, a woman in childbirth, and a WWI soldier are featured.
