Memories in Old Books

June 23, 2011 by Hubbard County Historical Museum Director

Hello from the Museum!  It has been a rainy week and a number of people have found their way to the Museum this week.

Recently I discovered this little book.

These beautiful little books were often given as Christmas Gifts in the late 1890′s.  Your classmates and friends could write remembrances and sweet little sayings in them.  The books are small enough that they could be tucked into a skirt pocket.   This book belonged to Florence.

If you would like to hear some memories first hand please join us June 27  Monday evening at 7 PM at the museum.  Enter the building through the south basement entrance.  After a short meeting,  Wesley Ellis will be one of the featured speakers.  Wesley wrote a book called  Four trips across the big hump in a sidecar pullman. Wesley is ninety-seven years old, he is a writer, carver and a musician.  He will play his guitar and mouthharp.   Leonard Hemerich will be our other featured speaker, he will tell us all about The Itasca Pioneer Farmers Show in August.   The public is encouraged to attend, refreshments will be served.

I have read Wesley’s book, I found it to be very entertaining and interesting.
