Here's a #BehindtheScenes look at our current special exhibition, “The Gift of Art.” In this photo, student worker Scott is carefully placing a museum label on the wall. Although this seems like a simple task, these labels require meticulous attention in order to make sure that they are level and appropriately spaced throughout the exhibition. Here at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum, sometimes it’s all about those #littledetails 🔍 Learn more about the exhibition at https://www.berry.edu/oakhill/exhibitions/special-exhibitions.

Way to go, Al! Check out The Highland Woodworker's latest episode of their “Moment With a Master” video series, highlighting Al Christopher! Christopher’s woodturnings were featured in our #TreetoTreasure exhibition last year, and they showcased the brilliance and talent of a craftsman with extensive knowledge of his materials. We’re thrilled to see him getting such recognition, but we can’t say we’re surprised 🙌 View the episode at http://ow.ly/2IJI50wWAAX

On October 15 of 1910, the Atlanta Georgian newspaper published a story about President Roosevelt's visit to the Berry Schools, along with a photo of the president during his visit. This publication certainly shows how Martha Berry’s efforts made news during her day! You can still see a copy of this photo at The Martha Berry Museum, and you can view the rest of this edition of the paper at http://ow.ly/SjLA50wP5h5.

Did you know that it’s Spinning and Weaving Week? Berry College has a storied heritage in the art of weaving, as it was once part of the curriculum for students at the Berry Schools. Last Tuesday, Berry College Elementary and Middle School students learned some weaving basics during our Old School Days program (read more at http://ow.ly/Fez750wHJlL). It was a fun filled day of history-based activities, and we were happy to make this craft a part of it!

It's another hot #MarthaBerryMonday, and we think this weather is a bit warm for September, don't you agree? In this photo, Martha Berry has taken off one of her signature fur coats even though she’s standing outside. Maybe she (much like us this season) is just trying to beat some unexpected heat! ☀️ #ItsTooHot

We were thrilled to have so many guests come out for #MuseumDay at Oak Hill! To celebrate this year's #YearofMusic theme, visitors were treated to both history and a musical performance on their tours, and they had an opportunity to view regional instruments from the museum’s collection on display just for this occasion🎵 Thanks to our guests and @Smithsonian for making this year's #MuseumDay such a blast!

This year’s #MuseumDay will be quite the musical occasion at Oak Hill; not only is September #PianoMonth, but 2019 is also Smithsonian’s #YearofMusic! Martha Berry often had musicians from Berry entertain guests at Oak Hill, and even played piano herself. The house will be full of sound again this Saturday on Museum Day, as tours will include special musical performances in the Oak Hill parlor. We will also have rarely-seen lap dulcimers from our collection on display 🎵 Be sure to get your Museum Day tickets at http://ow.ly/KtJn50vVh9E

It’s #ReadABook Day, which Martha Berry would certainly celebrate well! She referred to the library at Oak Hill as her favorite room of the house, and even considered becoming an author before she began working as an educator. As an avid reader herself, Martha might ask: what will you be reading today? 📚

You might remember our post last week detailing the cottage’s history; among other roles, it served as a schoolhouse for the Berry children, making this the spot that Martha Berry experienced her very own #FirstDayofSchool 🏫📚

Time for some #BerryTrivia: Berry students will soon move into their dorms on campus, but students could once sleep here instead! This location has served as a schoolhouse, a home, a residence for security officers, and as a ‘dorm space’ for students; can you name this historic spot at Oak Hill?

It’s #MarthaBerryMonday once again; notice anything out of place inside the elevator at Oak Hill? To help Martha get up the stairs in her later years, the Berry community had this elevator installed. Apparently, it didn’t take long for her to learn the elevator was unreliable. Not wanting to waste a single moment, Martha had this chair, light, and book installed to keep her busy when she was stuck inside waiting for the repairman! Typical #MarthaBerry 📚💡⏰

#SharkWeek may only last a week, but guess who loves sharks year-round? Meet Holly, a Freshman Environmental Science major who began working as a docent at Oak Hill this summer, and who hopes to specialize in working with marine wildlife. Holly brings her interest in the environment to Oak Hill, but also brings an unexpected level of experience to the table: she's worked as a docent before! In high school, Holly gave tours at the Rogers House and Rose Cottage in Madison, GA. She carries the lessons she learned there to her new job at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum. We love having student workers like Holly, who use their unique interests and skills to strengthen the Oak Hill team!

It’s #AmeliaEarhartDay today! Earhart visited Berry College in 1934, three years before her disappearance over the Pacific. Earhart attempted to circumnavigate the globe during that fateful flight, and left behind a legacy as a true pioneer in the world of aviation. Here she is during her visit (third from the right), next to Martha Berry and the Berry Ballad Girls.

Is #CornbreadandCoffee a thing? Martha Berry thought so! One Berry student who worked in Oak Hill during the late 1920s shared, “She didn’t eat very much for breakfast, but she always wanted a cornbread muffin and her coffee.” We think Martha Berry had the right idea when it came to her favorite morning meal—maybe we’ll add it to our own breakfast routine 🌽🍞☕ #MarthaBerryMonday

Is it alright if we #ThrowbackThursday all the way to 1903? On this date 116 years ago, the newly minted @Ford Motor Company was hard at work on its first order, a Model A with a two-cylinder engine. This first car (with an unprecedented 8 horsepower 🔥) was the start of Henry Ford’s career in the automobile industry, a career that would eventually give him the funds and positioning to invest in #BerryCollege. Henry Ford and his wife Clara became dear friends of Martha Berry, and financial support from these two would change the face of the college forever. Without that first Model A, Berry College surely wouldn’t look the same today!
