DECAYING THE PAST EXHIBITION
Downstairs at the Morgan-Manning House
Friday, December 10, 2021 - 6-8pm
Monday, December 13, 2021 - 6-8pm
Friday, December 17, 2021 - 6-8pm
Exhibit by Curator Dr. Rozenn Bailleul-LeSuer and Tyler Angora, WMHS Curatorial Intern
The purpose of this exhibit is to show that without museum curators a conservators, the physical past would not be preserved. Therefore, it is important to act and preserve historical artifacts as best we can. The objects displayed are from the MMH collection and have unfortunately suffered from time and ill-treatment. The main focal point of the exhibit will be Sara and Susanne Morgan's wedding dresses, as these are two important pieces in the MMH collection.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out with the Christmas Pictures on December 5th, 2021, and thank you to everyone who showed up to have their pictures taken. Your donations are greatly appreciated.

The Civil War and dawning of the age of steel presented many challenges to the sensibilities and values of the Victorian class in America. In the years prior to the turn of the century, the Victorians reinvented themselves in many interesting - and some disturbing ways. The way that they reordered their world led the working class to find its own voice late in the 19th century.
