Tapping into History, featuring Greenfield Tap & Die, Lunt Silversmiths, and D. B. Kellogg's Grocery Store, and examining the lives of employers and employees in the early 20th century. This major exhibit is supported in part by a grant from Mass Humanities, which allowed us to inventory the artifacts we hold from these three local businesses,and uncover the connections between them. Thank you Mass Humanities!
