The event begins at the Tallman Carriage House for the revealing of 2019 events and programs that will appeal to a wide variety of interests and people of all ages. An open house next door at the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center follows, where guests will be the first to see two new exhibits. Parker Pen World features some of the most popular Parker pens in history, a collection of old ads and memorabilia, and music from the Parker Pen Band. The new See Rock County! exhibit allows visitors to experience life as a Rock County tourist in the early 1900s. Selfies are encouraged at a host of stations, including in the 1923 Chevrolet Superior Series B Phaeton convertible and on an old-fashioned sleigh. Guests are also welcome to share their own stories and memories throughout the exhibit. In the recently remodeled Museum Center, visitors will also see the new Rock County Stories gallery, filled with stories shared by community members.
