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.

Laurens Public Library

The Sound of Music

Hover your smart phone camera over the QR code in our exhibit and listen to the sounds of our Edison Disc Phonograph.

This display is full of musical items important to the people who owned them. Joseph Stoulil brought over his wooden clarinet from Bohemia. Carl Anderson inherited a beloved  accordion in 1911. And can you believe that Havelock had not one but two bands?
