The newest temporary exhibit at The History Center, Apron Strings: Ties to the Past celebrates the rich and varied craft history while delving into the societal changes displayed through their design. Delicately embroidered aprons of the 1920s reflected a time of economic ease while aprons of the 1930s serve as a stark reminder of The Great Depression. Don't miss this fascinating exhibit.
