Kids invited to decorate pumpkins at museum

By
From page C6 | October 25, 2013 |

The Hattie Weber Museum of Davis will celebrate an early Halloween on Saturday by providing treats for goblins, ghosts, princesses and all other trick-or-treaters. The museum, 445 C St., will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be pumpkins to decorate and take home. Decorating supplies will be provided, or children can bring their own. Admission is free but donations are accepted with gratitude.

Adults are welcome to try their hands at decorating as well, or they can enjoy the museum’s latest exhibit of surviving 19th century homes in Davis, view the “mystery” family photos or admire the museum’s most recent acquisitions, a 1916 high school graduation dress and a 1906 or 1907 picture of a group posed in front of the Davis grammar school.

Continuing exhibits at the museum explain the history of Davis from the Native Americans through the coming of the railroad and the University of California’s Farm School, as well as the story of the development of libraries and the museum itself. The answer to the question, “Who was Hattie Weber?” is answered in text and pictures.

On request, a volunteer will crank up the phonograph purchased by William Oeste in 1913 and still going strong. Another hands-on exhibit is a 1950s typewriter that also functions well. Older office machines, including an early dictaphone, are also on display.
