Arthurdale Heritage hosts new exhibit of historic artifacts

Arthurdale Heritage is opening a new exhibit, “Treasured: Contemporary Reflections of Arthurdale,” featuring artifacts from its archives and museum collection, including some rarely seen on public display.

The exhibit will run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday through Jan. 13 in historic Center Hall, 18 Q Road in Arthurdale. The exhibit is free to the public.

Arthurdale Heritage and this exhibit will be closed for the holidays, Dec. 23-Jan. 1.

Each artifact in the exhibit has been chosen to help tell the story of the Arthurdale community from its founding in 1934 to today.

The artifacts hold not only personal meaning to members of the present day Arthurdale community but also regional and national significance to the history of the Great Depression and the New Deal.

The exhibit connects Arthurdale, the nation’s first of 100 New Deal subsistence homestead communities created under an experimental program launched by the Roosevelt administration in 1933, with present day projects and programs at Arthurdale Heritage.
