Event Description

Montauk Historic Site

During Iowa Museum Week Montauk will be hosting the State Historical Society of Iowa’s History on the Move: Iowa History 101 mobile museum. Like a visit to your grandparents' attic, the exhibition unpacks stories of Iowa's past with nearly 50 artifacts, including: A battered hat from a coal miner in Boone ; a 1917 prototype of the state flag designed by Dixie Cornell Gebhardt of Knoxville; the pen Gov. William Harding used to sign the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote; a basketball jersey Lynne Lorenzen wore during her glory days at Ventura High School; an Olympic medal from sprinter Natasha Kaiser-Brown of Des Moines; a patch from a spacesuit worn by astronaut Peggy Whitson of Beaconsfield; just to list a few. Montauk will be open for tours as normal during this time, so stop by for a look at the mobile museum and tour of the house!
