EXHIBIT OPENING: A Most Commodious Store: N.H. Skinner & Co.
Come celebrate the opening of our spring exhibition: A Most Commodious Store: N.H. Skinner & Co., featuring clothing, photographs, and much more from one of the most influential and beloved institutions of historic downtown Taunton. The first Taunton merchant to fully embrace the idea of a modern department store, Nathan Hack Skinner and his company became inextricably linked to the commercial, social, and cultural development of the city. He boasted that new and exciting products and appliances could be found on every shelf, and it was none other than Skinner who brought the first elevator to Taunton. Join us for this opening night and enjoy good company and delicious refreshments. This event is free and open to the public. We hope you can join us, bring a friend, and share in the city’s rich historic past.
