Our latest exhibit is "Laundry: A Chore, An Art, A Living"

Doing the laundry in the 1800's to early 1900's 
was a demanding event. The exhibit explores 
the chore of washing, the art of combining 
diverse additives to achieve laundry success, 
and the role of being a laundress in 
empowering women with their own income.
