Why bother looking at artifacts, you might ask? Artifacts - the objects we make and use - can be sources for better understanding our history. While textbooks focus on the great documents of the American past, or the important events, artifacts can show us another kind of history, another way of approaching the past.
Join us on our as we explore St. Charles’ history through 100 artifacts from our collection posted in 100 days. What will you learn?
