David Strother's Historic Barber Shop

Voting Rights: Landscape of Today

An examination of present-day issues surrounding voting and enfranchisement, and what you can do to preserve this civic necessity.

Children's Spaces

In addition to the three exhibits, there are spaces for young visitors, including a play barber shop and polling booth.
