Voices and Votes is based on a major exhibition currently on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. This Museum on Main Street adaptation will have many of the same dynamic features: historical and contemporary photos; educational and archival video; engaging multimedia interactives with short games and additional footage, photos, and information; and historical objects like campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia, and protest material. Our democracy demands action, reaction, vision, and revision as we continue to question how to form “a more perfect union.” How do you participate as a citizen? From the revolution and suffrage, to civil rights and casting ballots, everyone in every community is part of this ever-evolving story – the story of democracy in America.
Trails and Rails hosts FREE fun for all ages at the Wagons West Celebration! On Saturday, June 10 from 10am-1pm: 38th annual Wagons West Celebration is an event YOU and YOUR family do not want to miss. This is a FREE event and features family fun activities, live music by Joan Wells , delicious food, exhibitors, pioneer demonstrators/impersonators, and kids games! Overall, a great way for kids and families to further explore history!
