What's New

This pair of leather gaiters was worn by Henry Eric Wright in the early to mid 20th century. The gaiters were hand made by the Oakleaf Legging Company. Eric could adjust the tops of the gaiters with a leather strap that passed through a metal buckle.

The gaiters were decorative and were worn with his C.P.R uniform - the scratches near the top suggest that they also acted as a form of protective equipment.

If you want to get a closer look don't miss the What's New Exhibit, on display until March 6, 2016

As I sort through the unique variety of artifacts I will be posting my progress to our website. This will allow visitors to view some of the artifacts that were found while also providing insight into the processes and procedures used by myself.
