Shop Girls Day
October -December 2020
Join us for an unforgettable event as local merchants craft couture dresses presented in a runway style exhibit. Historically, Shop Girls Day originated in the early 1900s. Local merchant shop girls wore custom designed dresses uniquely fashioned to advertise the goods and services provided by each business. Two extraordinary dresses, circa 1900, were professionally photographed and these archived images have become the museum's inspiration for one of our special exhibits and event.

Join us this year for the debut of the Sister City Pact Exhibition. The exhibit includes the Sister Signing Ceremony highlights and the unveiling of a WWII tank wheel, a gift from our Sister City-Holtzwihr, France. This wheel is from the actual tank that Lt.
