Grand Opening Oct 9-10, 2010

We had a wonderfully fun opening weekend on the 9th and 10th.

The La Habra High School Class of 1960 had a great special exhibit for their 50th Reunion and tons of alumni stopped by to see the photos, articles, kilts, pompoms, and videos highlighting that memorable year.

The permanent exhibit's Windows in Time were also a hit with visitors as they remembered how the rooster in the Farm Window would wake them up in the morning; commented on how the typewriter in the Early Business Window looked so bulky and heavy compared to today's laptops; and how fashion hasn't changed all that much over the years looking at the Home Life Window's flapper dress and shoes. The large mural and mural timeline also added rich detail to La Habra's history.

The general store featured Brownie, the German shepherd who accompanied OT Stephens around town reminding businessmen to attend the Kiwanis meetings, and the theater showed an endless loop of videographies.

The museum will be open from 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, so please stop by and see what everyone is talking about.
