Hattie Weber Museum gets a facelift Saturday

By From page A4 | May 24, 2013

The Hattie Weber Museum of Davis will be open as usual Saturday, but some unusual outdoor activity will be taking place.

Members of the Davis Rotary Club will join museum volunteers to sand, patch and paint the front window boxes and railings of the building at 445 C St., in the northeast corner of Central Park. The Rotary Club also provided funds to purchase supplies for the project.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. This weekend is the last time to view the exhibit honoring mothers, grandmothers and other exceptional woman who also are remembered with inscribed bricks in the rose garden adjacent to the museum.

Continuing exhibits include bottles discovered in the well of the Dresbach mansion, a pre-World War II gas stove and porch pillars from the recently demolished Peña house, “Hattie’s Attic” pieces from the museum storage cupboards, a steel ball from the top of the Davis’ first water tower and well, typewriters and other office machines from the 1920s and ’30s and Miss Hattie herself.

Museum admission is free, but donations are accepted with gratitude.
