What’s New At The Museum?
We have been busy during the lockdown and have new displays and some new additional items added to our Pioneer Collection.
Just some of the changes are; a music room has being created along with a portion of the display to honor Hortense McQuarrie Odlum and thank her for making our Museum possible. Her first cousin, Ferol Moore Kincade helped make possible the expansion in 1985. Without these two women we wouldn’t have this beautiful museum today.
The Christmas Cake has it’s own display case now and it is wonderful to see it highlighted. It is now over 120 years old!
Two of our beautiful silk dresses are in individual cases. They are such a wonderful example of Pioneer ingenuity and determination. Those ladies grew the silk worms and made the silk fabric for their dresses. It took a long time to get a new dress.
