Our “Vases and Valentines” exhibit is now open. We are pairing the valentines with vases, and these vary from Depression Glass to Carnivale Glass to pottery from Roseville, Hull and van Briggle. This is the first time we’ve pulled the vases in the collection into an exhibit and many of these have rarely been out of storage.
We’ll have the contents of a traveling trunk found in the house, which belonged to Isobel’s uncle, Andrew McCall, on exhibit for just a few more months.
We are open the third Saturday of every month from noon - 4:00 pm. Admission is free, with donations welcome and appreciated.
