UPCOMING EXHIBIT

HATS OFF! A HISTORY OF HEADWEAR

FEBRUARY 22-MAY 14, 2022

The production and use of hats has seen cultural and social changes throughout history. In the past, hats were usually more about fashion than function. The Kings Mountain Historical Museum has collected a variety of hats and head coverings over the years as part of an overall effort to preserve our communities' shared history. This exhibit will feature highlighted pieces from our collections and explore the history of headwear and its place in our culture. We will examine the creation and evolution of hats, symbolism and style, and how they are an expression of functionality and form.

*This event will adhere to social distancing protocols and guidelines in place at the time of the event.
