New Exhibit Construction

We've been busy the last couple of days. I thought I'd give you all a visual tour of what's been going on as we deinstalled the From Smaland Sweden to Big Land Texas exhibition, and we're beginning work on our newest exhibit: Fighting Back: The 1923 KKK Trials.

Here's the exhibit before we took it down.

After I took down all the artifacts, labels and photographs, and the construction guys pulled out elements to reuse in the new design.

And, we're back!

We hope you all had a nice, refreshing holiday. I know I did. And, now we're back to the daily routine, if there is such a thing at a museum.

Up next: The Salon at Wildfire. Join us on Wednesday, January 13, at 6:30 pm.

After you've rediscovered Shakespeare, come to the next Books for Texans Book Club meeting on Tuesday, January 19, at the Georgetown Public Library at 7:00 pm. We'll be discussing Texas Politics and Greed by Ross McSwain and Harold Byler.
