Everything has a history, even those household items we use every day and take for granted. Now you are offered an opportunity to learn the interesting history behind these items, according to Kim Goss of the Frank Phillips Home in Bartlesville.
The Frank Phillips Home and the Nellie Johnstone Questers are offering a series of presentations of “Tangible History” beginning April 22, with subsequent presentations scheduled for June 24 and August 26.
“These programs will focus on the history of household and decorative items and how they were created and used,” Goss said. The first program, from 12:10 to 1 p.m., will focus on antique pincushions and buttons and is presented by Barbara Williams.
Questers embody the excitement of searching for that perfect treasure, the love of learning about antiques, the interest in history, the joy of working on preservation and restoration projects. They take special pride in helping preservationists and conservators who professionally care for our history, artifacts and sites, according to Goss.
“The Frank Phillips Home is excited to host these presentations, and the staff is looking forward to welcoming visitors along with members of Questers,” Goss said.
The Frank Phillips Home was the residence of Frank Phillips, founder of Phillips Petroleum Company. Today, the Home preserves the history of the home and its furnishings and offers tours and various presentations throughout the year.
