whittier-cameos-poster_vsm.png Cameos of Whittier's Women - 2014
In 2014, HHS did two presentations of a work by volunteer Elly Becotte called Cameos of John Greenleaf Whittier's Women. It consisted of 16 HHS volunteers dressed in period costume, each portraying a different woman from his life, reading from Elly's script. This Archive version is an attempt to capture the Hampton presentation through photos taken at the event, accompanied by the text from Elly's scripts.

china Souvenir China Exhibit - 2019
The Souvenir China Exhibit was on display in the "60's Wing" of the museum starting in May, 2018. It occupied 4 of our main display cases, and culminated with Betty Moore's presentation in November, 2018, describing the various china pieces in the exhibit and their history.

This archive view of the exhibit includes close-up individual images of every piece in the exhibit, so it is a good chance for even people who saw the exhibit to get an even closer view of the pretty items that were on display.
