Volunteers (aka our superhero’s that give of their time and talents)... Meet Kay, former Director & Docent (tour guide), for the Graham-Ginestra House. Volunteers like herself help to keep our rich Rockford history alive.
Standing in front of one of the unique features of the house, a stain glass widow, which depicts a winter scene similar to a Currier & Ives painted lithograph. Currier & Ives were among the most popular wall hangings in 19th-century America which typically depict the history and customs of the American people. They also provided a valuable historical record of a time when news photography was still unknown.
Come and learn more about Rockford’s historic home, built in 1857, along with all the Ethnic Heritage Museum’s galleries. Open every Sunday beginning February, 9th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
