A major exhibit is mounted each summer at Seven Hearths
when the house museum is open to the public in July and August.
Frequently in the past, we have presented items from our collection
of Victorian "fancies" - jewelry bags, laces, gloves and silks.
Another summer saw children's toys, books, clothing and more.
The most popular exhibit is our extensive collection of old
photographs, which we bring out every 5 years or so. When
not on display at Seven Hearths, they may be seen at the Swift
House during regular Kent Historical Society hours.
The last decade has seen a series of community-based exhibits
in which we borrow items from townspeople to put on display
along with our own treasures. This has proven to be a very
popular idea, and draws many more visitors to Seven Hearths
than we might normally have. Our "partners" have a sense of
ownership of the exhibit and often bring family and friends
to see it.
