This summer, we’ll be exploring the Lost Art of Letters with a display of the Chambers family’s correspondence. In this age of texts and tweets, hand-written letters are a rarity. The Chambers collection contains a treasure trove of letters, telegrams, and cards from friends, family members, colleagues, and sorority sisters that spans the 20th century, along with fountain pens, inks, wax seals, and stamps. Lost Art of Letters will run from June 8th through August 15th.
Regular tour hours are Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please make reservations for groups of 10 or more at 409-832-4010.
