Exhibits on Davis treasures, MLK open at museum

From page A10 | January 04, 2013 |

The Hattie Weber Museum of Davis will open two new exhibits Saturday.

Featured will be items discovered in a “dig” on the grounds of the Dresbach mansion during the construction of Mansion Square in the 1970s. Jeff Cadway got permission to excavate the old well next to the mansion and unearthed a fascinating collection of bottles and other items, including a tiny porcelain doll body, cologne and medicine bottles, what may be a soap dish with an elaborate lid. He recently donated his collection to the museum.

The museum’s annual tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. and the Davis Freedom Marchers who traveled to Selma, Ala., to be with him features recently discovered snapshots of the marchers and some photos of military surveillance of the march.

Ongoing exhibits at the museum include Warren Hardaker’s photo collection of UC Davis and Davis, a collection of “Treasures from Hattie’s Attic” and an account of Bill Roe’s adventure biking the Lincoln Highway.

The museum is located at 445 C St. in the northeast corner of Central Park. It is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Admission is free but donations are accepted with gratitude.
