Traveling with Agnes Scully

This exhibit features a postcard collection that follows the life of Miss Agnes Scully. Agnes Scully was just an average citizen of North Adams whos old postcards were discovered in the basement of a foreclosed house on Windsor Lake. Through these historic artifacts, we were able to "get to know" Miss Agnes Scully and take a glimpse of what her life was like and how she lived it. This exhibit is an example of how relatable history is to any individual, regardless of the legacy they leave behind. Each and every person on this earth holds their own personal history, we as a species collectively make history every day. And you never know, similar to the case of Miss Agnes Scully, one day 100 years from now students may be studying YOUR historical artifacts.
