Special History Exhibits

 

Nine original lithographs from the 1857-1858 Album of Virginia will be on display at the museum through the courtesy of Bob and Susan Miller, who are also sponsoring the exhibit. The exhibit will explore the history of the artist Edward Beyer and how his work fit into the nascent culture of tourism in the mid-nineteenth century. Beyer traveled and worked extensively in Virginia leaving artwork that is both beautiful and descriptive; a rare visual treat that we hope you will share with us. The exhibit opens January 11, 2018.

 

The production of local farms and historic food preservation techniques played important roles in what people in Montgomery County ate throughout history. Join us as we remember salt rising bread, sauerkraut, and apple butter in this tasty treat of an exhibit opening January 11, 2018.
