Exhibits, Workshops & Lectures


Our changing exhibits discuss local objects and events within their broader historical context. Visitors are encouraged to discover more through experiential and hands-on activities.

Our current exhibits include:

The Flood of 1972
View photographs and home movie footage from the flooding in June of 1972. Visitors can also add copies of their flood images to the library’s collections or arrange to share their recollections in an oral history recording.

Lessons, Libraries and Leadership: The Many Lives of Mattie Bullard
Discover the life of Seymour’s first librarian who was also a local educator and active in the women’s suffrage movement.

The Original Collection
Explore volumes which were on the Seymour Library’s shelves when it opened in 1878. Over two hundred of the original books have stood the test of time and are now part of the History Discovery Center’s collections.


Workshops on genealogical and house history research and image and document preservation are offered throughout the year.


Lectures by local historians will be offered throughout the year and open to the community. Stay up-to-date with our events and classes by subscribing to our newsletter or Facebook.
