Hat Donation

The opening of our new exhibit, "What Killed the American Hat?" was met with great reviews as well as the  donation of this beautiful hat.

Ann Fenn brought in this stylish topper she bought it in 1963 at the Heironimus department store in downtown Roanoke, Virginia.

From there it made its way to the heart of Placer County and ultimately to our Collections Management Facility where it will be well looked after. Thanks Ann!
