A glass top case has been host to exhibits of: Unusual Textiles, 1800's School Books, Order of the Eastern Star items, WWI memorabilia, and Pound family Christmas ornaments. We also host a variety of traveling exhibits throughout the year. Check our calendar for special exhibit events.

1900’s Sailor-Style Dress

This light blue, cotton dress with white piping was machine-sewn by one of the Pound descendants. This style was advertised for use by school girls (ages 14-18), as it was considered to be in good taste and would remain stylish for years to come.


Pound Family Handkerchiefs

On display through June 2019. Displayed throughout the house is a portion of the larger handkerchief collection. Dating to the 1880’s, a range of styles are represented. Some are hand embroidered, while others were part of a boxed gift set.
