“Miss Morron’s World Travels” Exhibition at Pettengill-Morron Historical Home Held Over Until November 3

Due to the popularity of this exhibit, we are pleased to announce that we will be able to share the “Miss Morron’s World Travels” exhibition at our Pettengill-Morron Historical Home thru Sunday, November 3.

If you haven’t already had the opportunity to  enjoy the literally hundreds of items on display (including her vast collection of Louis Vuitton luggage), please do join us on either Sunday, October 6 or Sunday, November 3 between 1-4 p.m.

Cost to tour is $7 per adult and $3 per child.

In 1912, Miss Morron took her first world tour with her father via steamship.  After that trip, travel became her life passion. In addition to the above mentioned items, you’ll be able to view Miss Morron’s travel wardrobe, custom dinnerware and fine china along with pieces of art she purchased on her trips abroad.

“Celebrating the Holidays Post World War II – 1945”

Please mark your calendar to  join us on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8 as we celebrate the holiday season with our Annual Holiday Homes Tour.  More details will be available in the November newsletter.
