Fancy Bell Pulls

September 5, 2015

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Family Discovery Gallery

On a wall in the Paine’s Ladies Reception Room hangs a reminder of days past—a fancy bell pull. Just like in the story of Downton Abbey®, in mansions servants responded to the sound of bells. Sometimes the ringing was a call to bring tea to be served to guests. The bell pull you design and make today won’t signal “tea time” but it will add a unique decoration to your wall.

This program is generously sponsored by Bank First National.

Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12.
