Local History Museum Expands Exhibits

March 14, 2013 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments

The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum is closed today through the end of the month while staff installs a new homesteading exhibit there.  Executive Director Dr. Sharon Kahin (KAY-INN) says the installation requires that displays that are already there are moved around to facilitate the placement of the new exhibit.  Kahin says the display will still focus on the cabin that has been on display in the center of the gallery, but it will be moved into a corner and opened out to accommodate more artifacts.  Kahin says items housed in the new exhibit will include a number of pieces that were in the old museum’s location on Deloney Street including a hand-made pitchfork, a stitching horse for leather work, a sharpening wheel, kitchen implements, and farm implements.  There will also be pack saddles and riding saddles along with a fully mounted horse outfitted with western tack.  Kahin says even though the museum is closed for the project, the museum store will be open with items focusing on Women’s History Month as it pertains to Jackson Hole.
