This year marks twenty five years of tours for the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Zimmerman House. To celebrate, the Museum’s After Hours event for August is a 1950’s themed bash. The library and archives focus exhibit will be open for view and we’ll have some scrapbooks and exhibition catalogs from the 50’s for visitors to peruse. This was a busy decade for the Currier.
