February Publicity for New Exhibit Franklin Historical Museum
We invite you to visit the Museum Sunday afternoons from 1-4 p.m. Although our hours are limited, there is still a lot to see. An exciting, permanent exhibit has recently been installed that is well worth the visit. Jim Johnston has installed a Federal Parlor in honor of his mother Clara F. Johnston. The beautifully appointed room brings you back in time to the way a Franklin home may have been decorated during the Federal period, late 1700s early 1800s.
A new exhibit will open in February that pays tribute to prominent women in Franklin history. Such names as Lydia Ray Pierce, Annie Ray Thayer, Alice Wiggin, Palma DeBaggis Johnson, Loraine Metcalf and Stella Kehayas Jeon are just some of the women who will be featured.
