GEORGE TAYLOR REMEMBRANCE: MUSEUM PARTICIPATION

This Saturday Little House Museum will participate in the George Taylor Community Remembrance Project in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation.
Please join us 10am-Noon this Saturday, November 3, 2018, as we observe the 100th Anniversary of the George Taylor Lynching of November 1918 with these actions:
  • First Reading of the students’ George Taylor Narrative with discussion of the event and the student project at 10am
  • First Opportunity to Make a Citizen’s Promise with Soil Collection for the students, at 10:30am

Multiple Wake County student groups have been collaborating on a social justice project that culminates this upcoming week. We hope you will take a moment to review the events of 100 years ago, just outside of Rolesville. We also hope you or your organization will consider participating in a very simple project to support student efforts to promote hope for the future through reconciliation with past injustice. The website that these students have set up explains the rest. Learn more using this link to the George Taylor Community Remembrance Project:

HRS QUARTERLY MEETING DECEMBER 11, 2017
KICKED OFF HISTORIC HOME HOLIDAY EXHIBIT!

It was great to see HRS sponsors and friends at the Winter quarter meeting this past Monday! We had great food, even greater company and a fascinating presentation by Mike Bailey on discovery of local artifacts. The “unveiling” of the latest donation to HRS – a 1:12 scale replica of the Mississippi plantation “D’Evereux” was a rousing success. The group was mesmerized by the miniature world created by the late Gary Johnsen, embellished for our Historic Home exhibit with seasonal decor and scenes from the McKissack’s Christmas in the Big House, Christmas in the Quarters. Little House Museum was dressed in her best seasonal finery for the event and the weeks that follow. We hope, if you missed this week’s meeting, you’ll stop by to soak up the historic site and holiday exhibit. Hours are listed on this website’s CALENDAR.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM HRS & LITTLE HOUSE!
