Hidden Histories of Objects Posts

Did you know the Littleton Museum has an estimated 50,000+ artifacts in its collection? Like most museums, we can’t display all our objects all of the time. Similar to the Throw Back Thursdays and Little Prompts projects, we’ll post an artifact on Facebook and Instagram weekly, exploring the hidden history behind the artifact, and why it is part of the Littleton Museum’s collection!
