History Highlights: OTM’s Seasonal Program Series
The Old Trails Museum offers a quarterly program series entitled History Highlights that features Northern Arizona historical topics. Visit our History Highlights page for details and images of all the speakers, exhibits, and programs that OTM has presented so far.
In conjunction with the 2016 Material Girls Quilt Guild Show, the Old Trails Museum offered its 2016 Fall History Highlight on Thursday, September 29, at 5 pm, at the Winslow Visitors Center/Hubbell Trading Post, 523 West Second Street. Author and filmmaker Pam Knight Stevenson gave a free presentation of Written in Thread: Arizona Women’s History Preserved in Their Quilts, which traces the history of Arizona through women who recorded pieces of their lives in their needlework.
