New this 2021 season: Women of Galesville

Pedal sewing machine, washboard, rug beater – these are some of the things on display that Galesville women relied on before electricity came in the early 1930’s. Want to know what to do with all those red corn cobs? There’s a recipe for corn cob jelly, along with other old-time recipes, from white potato pie to scrapple. And a few of the women who made their mark on Galesville are featured in our newest exhibit.

The new Women of Galesville exhibit.
