From the Conner Vault




Conner HomesteadView a Treasure from the Conner Family's Collection
August 30-31

In the Conner home, see a locket that features a mini-portrait of John Conner from 1813.  This is a rare opportunity to view a cherished object that has been passed down through the generations for one hundred years. This will help you answer August's theme question: "How do we remember people when we are separated from them, by distance or death?"
