I started the research journey with some foundational goals: our work would be focused on people and their unique life journeys, it would be documented and cited to ensure accuracy, and the process would be ongoing - often including more questions than answers.
On Saturday, June 3rd from 12-2pm, join the Heurich House Museum and founder of local small business Zenit Journals, Alina Liao, for a wellness journaling workshop in the museum’s Castle Garden. Learn how journaling can be a tool to improve your mental health, explore the concept of memory and how you want to be remembered, and explore Amelia’s journals up close in our new exhibit, Working Title.
The Heurich House Museum will present its first new exhibit since 2018, which its education team developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working Title reframes the Heurich family home as a central juncture for the people who lived and worked there (1894-1956) - men and women, immigrant and natural-born, Black and white, rich and lower-income, examines how they interacted with each other every day, and questions why their histories have not always been given equal weight.
