In Celebration of Weddings: 1854-1959 Our feature exhibit this season is a celebration of weddings. It is a sampling of the century, showcasing items from the collection of the Rotary Jail Museum. Wedding dresses and other wedding-related items from the century will be on display. There will be information about weddings, wedding customs, and also the 1892 wedding dress of Ida Tannenbaum (the mother of Max Tannenbaum, for whom the Tannenbaum Center is named). The exhibit will be on display through October.
