The theme of our latest lobby display is Home for the Holidays. Featuring antiques on loan from the City of Ocoee Withers Maguire House, this display includes items that might have been found in a typical Ocoee home in the late 1800s.
A cast iron skillet, cookie cutters, a meat grinder, recipe book, and a coffee grinder are among those items used to prepare for the holidays. Objects representing dinner with the family include an elegant menu card, pickle caster, tea strainer, salt cellar, and butter server. After dinner entertainment includes playing cards, an inkwell, dominoes, an oil lamp, books, and a stereoscope for viewing photographs.
