The John G. Riley House Center and Museum will host a virtual exhibit showcasing what life was like more than half a century ago. There will be illustrations and anecdotes from Tallahassee seniors on how everyday tasks like laundry used to be more challenging. The Museum’s Aron Myers says it’s meant to spark intergenerational dialogue.
“For some families, for a long period of time history and culture were preserved because they would pass down family stories or oral histories and so this is another reason why this exhibit is important because again it allows families to share those oral histories one generation passing down stories to the next,” Myers says.
The virtual exhibit will open Saturday at 10 a.m. on the Museum’s website.
