Summer 2019 is here, don't miss this New Exhibit

 Did you know that Collinsville was once a center for clothing manufacturing?  Three different companies made everything from baby booties to women’s work outfits to women’s hats.  Maybe one of your parents, or your grandparents, were employed at one of the factories!  The women’s clothing and hats were sold under a variety of retail names and many were advertised in magazines like Vogue.  Come into the Museum to see our display presenting the early clothing industry of Collinsville
