Exhibit 7: September 2003 – May 2004

Clarkston Collections:
Gathering Our Past

This exhibit gave the Clarkston Historical Society the opportunity to feature the many different artifacts within our general collection. This exhibit takes the viewer through the process of what it is we collect, how we acquire these items and why they are important to us. With artifacts from local and out-of-state donors to purchases made by the society through the internet, there was a little bit of everything in this display and it covered a wide range of times and purposes. Some of the items found in this exhibit were: A pair of riding jodhpurs from the 1920s, the 1879 marriage certificate of Edwin Clark to Helen Vliet, a 1905 Sashabaw School souvenir booklet, dance tickets to the Clarkston Opera House and a 1898 Course of Study Booklet for the Clarkston Union School. With over 100 items on display, this exhibit offered something of interest to everyone.
