Feb. 10, 2014  PLYMOUTH VOICE.


The Plymouth Historical Museum announced their new exhibit-Project Vintage Runway, patterned after the TV series, Project Runway. The exhibit will open Jan. 29 and run through Jun 9.

The exhibit showcases American men’s and women’s fashion over nearly two centuries, 1820-1970. In keeping with the runway theme, the fashions are displayed down a runway on the Museum’s Main Street. Many of the Museum items shown have never been exhibited before, while others are from a private collection. In addition, the special exhibit highlights three stores that were part of the fabric of downtown Plymouth in years gone by: Davis & Lent, Dunning’s, and Cassady’s.

The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store and features 26,000 square feet of exhibits, a museum store, an extensive archives and research library, and a meeting room.

The museum located at 155 S. Main Street, just north of Kellogg Park in Plymouth, is open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Plymouth museum is one of Plymouth’s many great amenities.
