The latest exhibition in the John Murray Davis Rotating Exhibit Gallery - You Are What You Wear

Exhibit on Display through the end of June!

INVERNESS - - The current exhibition on display in the traveling/rotating gallery at the Museum titled, You Are What You Wear is a lighthearted look back in time, using clothing as a story-telling medium. This exhibition showcases photographs and artifacts, many of which have never been seen on display. We hope you all share in the please we have gained in putting this exhibit together. While a majority of the items on display are from our own collection, this exhibition would not have been possible without the generous support of many community members. The exhibition and program team at the Museum hopes you will gain appreciation of the value that our collection has in preserving this very important part of Citrus County history.  

For large groups, Thompson recommends calling to schedule a tour. The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum can be reached for more information at (352)341.6436 or e-mail katherine.turner@citrusbocc.com.
