Stories of Freeport’s Past: Celebrating Our Collections – Exhibit Opening

February 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

donation
This exhibit will showcase objects that tell an interesting story, for example the top hat of Freeport entrepreneur E.B. Mallet who developed Freeport Village in the late 19th century by building a shoe factory, and opening a granite quarry, sawmill, and brickyard to encourage industrial production. In addition to these strongly "storied" artifacts, you will see objects donated by families in town who do not often see their items on view, as well as some "mystery" objects--- items that are intriguing, but come with little or no associated history (except that they are from Freeport). These objects are all currently stored in our archive and are not generally seen by the public.
