Current Exhibitions

In Grand (River) Fashion

May 20, 2022 - October 2, 2022

What was fashionable in the past? How did people in the Tri-Cities keep up with the latest trends? In Grand (River) Fashion showcases the history of fashion and the fashion industry in the Tri-Cities. The exhibition features a timeline of women’s garments from the 1800s to the mid-1900s, while also highlighting the history of local clothing makers and retailers in the area. Come learn what adults and children wore and where they shopped in Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Ferrysburg.
