Take a look back at how Barringtonians enjoyed themselves at social gatherings.
"Let's Celebrate" is the latest exhibit at the Town Museum operated by the Barrington Preservation Society. It will open sometime in early December.
"The exhibit features vintage costume jewelry made in what was known as the Rhode Island jewelry district -- featuring Coro, Monet, Trifari, etc.," said Carole Villucci, museum director.
"We will have celebratory vintage photographs, a music section featuring the trombone from the Community House Band, historic formal wear for both a woman and man, and a beautiful quilt from the early 19th century," she said.
"Another section will showcase 'special occasion' dining featuring early 20th century silver and glass," said Villucci.
The museum is located in the lower level of the Barrington Public Library. Its hours are 11 am to 4 pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. When the library is closed, the museum is closed.
