President/CEO Jonathan Webb discusses the new Smithsonian traveling exhibit, "The Way We Worked" that is now on display at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History with Blake Keller of WNEM TV 5. The exhibit will be on display now through August 2020.
The exhibit is accompanied by a cell-phone tour that allows visitors to access additional details provided by the exhibition curator, Bruce Bustard, senior curator for the National Archives.
A companion exhibit, Saginaw at Work created by the Castle Museum, complements the exhibition The Way We Worked. This display captures individual stories of the labors of Saginaw County residents. The photographs within this exhibit focus on construction, farming, factories and many other trades and professions.
An interactive portion of the exhibit encourages children and adults to explore a mid-20th century office.
The Way We Worked and Saginaw at Work is on display now through August 2020.
