Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Make your own decorative box for keepsakes and other trinkets. We’ll use scraps of fabric and wallpaper to make our simple boxes beautiful, just like 19th century people did for containers to hold hats and other accessories. Then visit the rest of the museum and learn about Rufus King - Founding Father and early voice in the anti-slavery movement.

Recommended for ages 3 and up, adults also welcome!
