A Time for Gathering

As the holiday season begins, most of us are planning to gather with friends and loved ones. For hundreds of years we have gathered, not only for Thanksgiving, but for homecoming ceremonies, family reunions and holiday parties. One of the most enjoyable tasks of reviewing the numerous historical images donated to the museum, is to investigate the people and events they document. When unable to discover the origin of the image, it is also quite fun to imagine the events. Here are a few of the gatherings which remain a mystery.

For more interesting information on Thanksgiving, I encourage you to visit wikipedia. Many of us may not know that tradition can be traced to England.

Happy Gathering!
