A new year, a lot of fun in store!

2018 is shaping up to be a busy year at the Historium! We have a new quilt exhibit in place right now, through March 15, featuring the works of sisters Martha Martin and Donna Lemons of Dora. Their contrasting styles of quilting (Martha does hand work, while Donna prefers machine!) makes for a unique exhibit.

Valentine's Day was celebrated with a basket-making workshop led by Michelle Werther of Protem and Sis Green of Theodosia. Eight participants each made a beautiful basket, start to finish, in one day! A second workshop is planned for March 14, and a third will be held if there is enough interest.

Old-time music is on the menu for Saturday morning, February 24. Guest blogger Kaitlyn McConnell, who writes about a wide variety of interesting Ozarks cultural  phenomena, will join us and will host a discussion with musicians such as H.K. Silvey, Alvie Dooms and J.R. Johnston, who are some of the best (and sadly, some of the few remaining) old-time musicians. After the discussion, music will ring through the rafters of the Historium! Join us if you can for this fun morning of music and information.
