NEH on the Road: House and Home

2018 is the City of Florence’s Bicentennial year! The House and Home exhibition will be one way we demonstrate how the story of Florence flows into the national narrative. From the story of our Woodland period Indian Mound and territorial period settlers to the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Rosenbaum House, Florence’s story of home parallels the story of our nation. The programming we have developed to accompany this large exhibit will play an important role in educating and engaging our community in our overall mission of connection and shared experience through the lens of American housing. Programs include a hands-on workshop for families to create a scrapbook journal that tells the history of their own homes, a panel of speakers who expertise in historic neighborhoods and community planning will shed some light on why our neighborhoods look the way they do, a lecture by local and state curators of history, and tours of some of our historic homes.
