Special Exhibits: Before TV

Among the recreational activities people today have at their command are things like streaming videos, plays, favorite TV shows, musical evenings at either an orchestral presentation or specific artists performing for an audience, or personal electronic equipment to view movies. It wasn't always like this. For our current exhibit, the New Scotland Historical Association has chosen the topic of "What did we do before TV?" We invite you to come see the toys and games and recreational activities we had before entertainment meant "Turn on the TV" or "Download a movie."
