SALISBURY, MD---The Edward H. Naab Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture hosts an open house to celebrate the opening of its new exhibit, “An Eastern Shore Holiday: Greetings and Gifts,” Wednesday, December 2, from 4-6 p.m.
The exhibit presents a changing view of the holiday season and gift-giving from 1880-1920 using a vast collection of toys and household artifacts. It demonstrates how the affluence of Victorian society encouraged a preoccupation with visible displays of possessions and wealth.
“An Eastern Shore Holiday” continues through Friday, December 18. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Visitors are asked to check in at the center’s Reading Room before entering the gallery.
