    Garden Excavation

    Spring is here and we are excited to be in our outside! When Winifred Lutz started the garden at the museum she excavated the space to uncover the foundation of the building that had once stood next to the Mattress Factory. She was interested in the history and memory of what she was uncovering. We will be excavating small treasures together in the garden and creating stories for what we uncover!
