Dundee Opera House
Back in the day, entertainment in Dundee was often provided at the Dundee Opera House built in 1893. The stage on the 3rd floor welcomed traveling shows, musicals, literary reviews and school plays and graduation ceremonies.
Advertising of Yesteryear
Long before the onslaught of various media technologies, simple things like posters, newspaper ads and other printed materials advertised things of local interest.
The fight for women’s right to vote began with the Temperance Movement in the 1820s and most actively from 1848 until the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified in 1920.
The annual Historic Sites Program and Plaque Presentation scheduled for November 2020 will unfortunately be postponed until November 2021.
We do not feel that we can accommodate a program under COVID 19 guidelines for the health and safety of our residents and volunteers.
Thank you for your understanding.
