"Pieces of the Past: Quilts Tell a Story" exhibit available as PowerPoint program

Posted:  7-25-2016

“Pieces of the Past: Quilts Tell a Story” is now closed. We soon will begin construction to prepare for our next exhibit at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau. Click Here For The Exhibit Home Page 

However, we can "walk" your group through the exhibit when we present our slide program featuring photos of all the quilts and stories about who made them and why. Call 715-842-5750 to schedule a presentation for your organization!

Quilts are used not only to keep people warm but also to decorate homes, as gifts to celebrate a person or event, and to remember a loved one. These historic quilts tell stories about their makers, and often are all that remain of these talented, self-sufficient women. 

Support for this exhibit was provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency; the Community Foundation; and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation. For more information, please call the Marathon County Historical Society at 715-842-5750.
