Hats and More



We have created a display of fashion accessories at the Pocahontas Public Library. From parasols and button shoes to fans and fancy scarves, it's clear that fashion has been alive and well during our county's history. 

When you get there, look closely at the exhibit for the elbow-length white leather gloves (not pictured above).  You will see how much smaller in stature our ancestors were. Their hands had to be tiny to fit into those gloves.
