On Thursday, October 22 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. the Eastern Avenue branch of the Davenport Public Library will be hosting the TRACES “Bus-eum”. This mobile museum is crossing Iowa sharing the history of the state in a retrofitted school bus.
During the visit, the Bus-eum will explore At Home in the Heartland. This eighteen panel exhibit explores how the Midwest developed differently from other regions, Iowa’s unique settlement patterns, and how these factors have both positive and negative influences today.
The exhibit features historic images, text, and videos. There is also a 90-minute workshop called Grindin’ Ol’ Bones: Exploring Together Social Context behind Family History.
The Davenport Public Library – Eastern Avenue Branch is located at 6000 Eastern Avenue, Davenport. This event is free and open to the public. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this unique opportunity!
