Join us Sunday, February 19, at 2:00 p.m. for a lesson on “Wooden Dolls”, the second program of “Carving a Lasting Legacy” hosted by Nancy Arthurs. Wooden dolls have been a part of history for hundreds of years. Nancy will share some of the wooden dolls she has carved and discuss how they were made. One of her favorite wooden dolls is Hitty, and she will have several to show. Hitty is the heroine of a Caldecott award book and has been having adventures for over 100 years. She also helped to support Nancy’s carving habit. This program is free to the public and refreshments will be served.

This special quarterly exhibit is brought to you by donations from our host, presenters, Miners Hall Museum trustees, members, Crawford County Commissioners, a grant from Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas, and private donations from supporters like you.

After the program you may also visit the current special exhibit “Carving a Lasting Legacy”, hosted by Nancy Arthurs.

Call 620-347-4220 with any questions. Our doors open at 1:30 pm and program begins at 2:00 pm. Reservations not required.

The special exhibit is open for viewing at Miners Hall Museum, 701 S. Broadway, Franklin, Kansas, 66735. Monday - Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm and will be on display through Thursday, March 30.
