In celebration of spring, 2013, the Sullivan County Historical Society has on display in the downstairs foyer glass case a collection of ladies' hats. Each of these ladies' head-dressea represents different historical eras; the earliest hat being dated as far back as 1845.
This exhibit has been created by the SCHS Museum's Exhibit Director Sharon Thorpe. With each hat style representing a particular era, Sharon, through the exhibit, challenges visitors to accurately guess the era which each particular hat represents.
As always, the SCHS Musuem is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
This has been a very popular exhibit. There were artifacts, books, pictures , and even a Civil War encampment complete with a tent, fire pit and checker board.
NOTE: This exhibit will close on January 10th 2016
