Heritage Village Museum invites you to view a new rotation of antique quilts from our extensive collection during our Antique Quilt Exhibit. This assortment of nineteen quilts spans a century of American culture from the 1840s through 1940s. Quilt patterns include: Log Cabin, Dresden Plate and Star of Bethlehem. The quilts are being displayed in the Village’s beautiful Hayner House.
 
Vintage Baseball
Baseball has been the prominent sport in American culture since the early 1800's. While most sports during this time were for the sole purpose of entertaining the wealthy, the commoners created a sport to play in their spare time.  The exhibit features over 70, balls, bats, gloves, uniforms, and games from the 1840s to 1910.
