UPCOMING SOCIETY EVENTS

 

 

HISTORICAL SOCIETY DISPLAY CASE

2018 Fall Exhibit
GLASS BASKETS

The MAHS exhibit case holds an assortment of personal collections of Glass Baskets.

We invite you to stop by the Borough Hall and see the unique collection.

 
It is the Victorian period and early 1900’s during which baskets flourished in America.
Glass baskets can be thought of as receptacles made of glass, with or without a handle. Or you can think of them as party dresses for flower arrangements. Some are frilly with ruffles along the top or bottom. Others are streamlined with simple lines. Some styles are quite playful with their dots, swirls or stripes. One example might glimmer; another might not shimmer at all. Colors can range from subdued and dignified to wild and bold. While pastels suit some personalities, others lean towards darker shades.

MONT ALTO HISTORICAL SOCIETY
MEETING DATES
Every 2nd Thursday of Each Month at: 7:00 PM
At the Borough Office

Mont Alto Historical Society was founded in October 2006. It started with five members. At the present time it has approximately 20 members and friends of the Society. The meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Mont Alto Borough Office, 3 N Main Street. Membership fees are listed below.

Some meetings include guest speakers on matters of historical interest in the area. When we don’t have guest speakers, the meeting begins with a brief business session, followed by an open session of sharing of historical artifacts and stories. Current members receive meeting reminder post cards in the mail. Meetings are also announced in the local newspapers and on the bulletin board outside the Borough Hall.
