Message From The Director
This year marks Hammonds House Museum’s twenty-fifth anniversary, and we are celebrating with new partnerships, new programs, and new perspectives on our exhibitions. We started the year by updating the look of our website.
We hope you will visit it often and find it useful. We will be adding new features over the coming weeks, and we invite you to let us know what
Our first exhibition of the year, “Homecoming: African American Family History in Georgia,” serves a dual purpose. First and foremost, it presents a series of archival photographs that give an enchanting view of southern life in the mid-1800’s into the twentieth century. It also launches an exciting new partnership with Auburn Avenue Research Library, Atlanta’s premier public library for information on African American culture and history. This partnership will enhance our ability to catalogue and digitize our permanent collection, and will allow the library to continue its own programming when it closes for renovations in the fall.
Be sure to check our website often for news about all the exhibitions and special programs that we are planning for the year. In 2013, we’re not only commemorating our last 25 years, but also building the foundation for success in the next 25.
