Pig Day will be celebrated Saturday at the Hattie Weber Museum of Davis, with an exhibit of the Stevenson pig collection, which includes pigs of many sizes, talents and personalities. There are plush pigs, ceramic pigs, china pigs and pigs that dance, sing and/or look adorable. Each has a name suited to his/her appearance and personality.

The collection will be on display at the museum, 445 C St. in the northeast corner of Central Park, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Children are most welcome and may bring parents or grandparents.

Other exhibits at the museum feature the coming of the railroad and the farm school for UC Berkeley; the Library Club, which sponsored and maintained the original town library and the transition of the building to its present site and use; the original Jerome Davis ranch, which became Davisville; and the formidable “Miss Hattie,” who presided over the library for more than 40 years.

New exhibits to be opened on Saturday, March 12, are in development. One features the people and houses of the 500 block of E Street in Old North Davis. Developed by local historian and author John Lofland, the exhibit shows the dwellings of the man who invented fruit cocktail and the fellow who persuaded comedian Bob Hope to come to town to perform at a benefit for the Davis Senior Center, among other interesting individuals who resided there in years past.

The other new exhibit features Davis women in public service, in honor of Women’s History Month. Women who served on the Davis City Council, Davis Board of Education, Yolo County Board of Supervisors, state Assembly and state Senate are featured, as well as Woodland and Clarksburg women who served as Yolo County superintendent of schools. Pictures and profiles of many of the women are included.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

    The Hattie Weber Pig Day post gives the wrong spelling of my name. The Buckingham pig crate label is from the Dingemans collection (not "Dinglemans). Not a high priority, but a change would be nice. Dennis DIngemans
