Four new temporary exhibits are now on display at the San Joaquin County Historical Museum in Micke Grove Regional Park. Two of the exhibits focus on hobbies of the mid-late 19th century, while the other two focus on historic crops of San Joaquin County. Visitors to the museum can view the exhibits in the Erickson Building until Nov. 15.

“Victorian Handicrafts” shows the domestic skills women developed to be successful wives and mothers.  Among the artifacts on display are a crazy quilt made between 1877 and 1884, a floral wreath made from human hair (c. mid-late 1800s), and silk worm cocoons belonging to Mrs. M. A. Stoddard (1884).
