The 1920s was a time when the world surrounding Weston was undergoing significant social and political changes. “Weston Slept While the Nation Roared: Life in the Twenties” will explore the monumental events taking place around the world as well as how Weston slowly emerged from an agricultural society to one that became a refuge from the chaotic life of the city.

Exhibition highlights include authentic 1920s clothing from the Darnell Collection and the PVH Archive courtesy of Tommy Hilfiger, original artwork by nationally renowned artist of the period and Weston resident, James Daugherty, courtesy of The Friends of James Daugherty Foundation, Inc, 1920s songwriters Mel Kaufman and Frank Silver memorabilia, and vintage radios. Explore life in the 1920s!
