Hudson – “Laura Ingalls Wilder and Hudson: A Literary Connection” has been expanded into a most interesting exhibit at the Hudson Historical Society Museum. According to Janet Zipes, guest exhibition coordinator, the exhibit features artifacts in the museum collection which are features in Wilder's books, including “Little House on the Prairie,” “Little House in the Big Woods,” and “On the Banks of Plum Creek.”
“I was struck by the items in the museum collection that are mentioned in her books,” Zipes said, “such as a ‘bootjack,” a ‘what not’, and a ‘poke bonnet.’
“Fans of Wilder's books will certainly be drawn to this exhibition, but anyone interested in the history of the American household should enjoy it as well,” Zipe added.
The Hudson Historical Society Museum is located in room C402 on the fourth floor of the Hudson Mill Business Center, 43 Broad St. Museum hours are Tuesdays, from 2 to 4 p.m.; the first Saturday of the month, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.; or by appointment.
