Museum sets new Wednesday hours

By From page A12 | July 28, 2013

Beginning Wednesday, the Hattie Weber Museum of Davis will be open from noon to 6 p.m. instead of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is at 445 C St. in the northeast corner of Central Park. Admission is free.

Children are welcome to play in the Kiddie Korner with reproductions of antique toys while adults view the exhibits.

Current exhibits include a giant birthday card for Old North Davis featuring pictures of some of the houses built in 1913, and a selection of later homes showing the variety of sizes and styles in the first development in Davis.

The “Worship in Davis” exhibit showing places of worship from the initial three churches to the current number of more than 40 worship sites in the community is still up. The “Hattie’s Attic: Treasures from our Cupboards” exhibit soon will be replaced by photographs and descriptions of Davis homes surviving from the 19th century.

Also in progress is an exhibit of unidentified family pictures found in a dressing table sold at a rummage sale several years ago. They are obviously important to some family and the museum hopes that visitors can help identify them so they can be returned to their rightful owners.

The change in Wednesday hours is designed to make it more convenient for people bound for dinner at the Farmers Market to visit the museum. Saturday hours — 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — will remain unchanged.
