amcg1130Bowlers, Derbies, Fedoras, Oh My! Whatever style you prefer, hats have always played an important part in our lives. They cover our heads when it rains or snows, they signify a social group or profession we belong to, and most importantly, they complete an outfit.

In the Exhibit “Hats Off to Manchester”, the Manchester Historic Association digs deep into its collection to bring you a special collection of hats made, worn or bought in Manchester. Take a stroll down memory lane as we bring stories, photographs and of course hats from some of Elm Street’s most beloved stores.  Come see hat boxes and display photos from Pariseau’s, J.W. Hills, and M.A. Barton’s just to name a few.

On exhibit through August 1.
