The Smithsonian Institute and the National Archives are launching a new traveling exhibition exploring America's labor history. Spanning the years 1857-1987, the exhibition's 86 black-and-white and color photographs document, in rich visual detail, American workplaces, work clothing, working conditions, and workplace conflicts. They also reflect a workforce shaped by immigration and ethnicity, slavery and racial segregation, wage labor and technology, gender roles and class, as well as by the American ideals of freedom and equality.

The Point Pleasant River Museum is hosting the traveling exhibit, along with exhibits about the many ways the people of Mason County earned a living and contributed to the growth of our country. Admission to the exhibits are the normal museum admission fee of $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Hours of the exhibition will be the normal museum hours.
