“Vintage Snack Sets” Exhibit at Fred and Addie Drummond Home
HOMINY, Okla. — The Fred and Addie Drummond Home in Hominy will feature “Vintage Snack Sets,” a temporary exhibit throughout the month of July. From the 1940s to the 1970s, women often entertained at home by hosting teas, coffees or church socials. On these special occasions, they would wear their Sunday best and bring out pretty snack sets that included a plate with a round indention to hold the matching cup. This exhibit will include pieces by manufacturers such as Anchor Hocking, Hazel-Atlas, the Indiana Glass Company, Royal Windsor, Queen Anne and Royal Albert.
“Vintage Snack Sets” exhibit is included with the regular admission fee. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors ages 62 and older, $4 for students and free for children five and under. As always, OHS members receive free admission, and all active military and veterans with ID receive free admission. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, occupancy is limited to no more than nine in the home at one time. Visitors will be admitted in the order of arrival. Tours will be given Wednesday through Saturday at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. On Sunday, tours will be at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. This schedule will allow staff time to sanitize the home between tours. Groups of more than eight are not being scheduled at this time. We ask that you practice social distancing by staying six feet away from staff and visitors who are not in your party.
