Past Exhibition 2011: Between Fences and Good Neighbors: Fences in Montgomery County

The Historical Society is pleased to be one of the hosts for the Maryland tour of Between Fences, an exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.  In addition to this display, which looks at the national importance of fences, barriers and borders in American history, MCHS is creating a companion exhibit, Good Neighbors: Fences in Montgomery County, which will look at fences and land use in Montgomery County, particularly in regards to (and in reaction to) the development of suburbia in the 19th and 20th centuries.  Both exhibits will be on display in the Betty Mae Kramer Gallery and Music Room, in the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza.
