How do artifacts help to tell the story of history? We tend to think of history as centered on the lives of influential people, but in this workshop we’ll examine the past through the life of things. Working as historical detectives, we’ll piece together the past by examining artifacts that clue us into Adams County history. Part of the Perl Mack Museum Project, a year-long program to develop a museum exhibit by, for, and about our community.
