    1920s Speakeasy

    Break out the beaded jewelry, feathers, and bowties because we are going back to the 1920s to celebrate the founding of the Wilson Museum on this day 100 years ago. Enjoy delicious food prepared by the Tarr family and “speakeasy” antics at the bar with Mark and Kelly Sawyer of MarKel’s Bakehouse. In addition to the frolic and fun, guests will have a first-hand look at the newly updated booklet on the Wilson Museum. Not yet a member?
