Family Stories exhibition at the Museum of North Craven Life, The Folly, Settle
Tue 9 July - Sun 3 Nov 2013

FFamily Storiesrom Tuesday visitors to the the Museum of North Craven Life at The Folly in Settle will get a rare chance to see some of the treasures from the collections of the Yorkshire Archaeological & Historical Society. The YAS has worked with the Museum to put on an exhibition of books, archive documents and photographs from its collections as part of the Society’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

The theme of the exhibition is ‘family stories’ and it focuses on three Craven families: the Listers of Gisburn, the Bollands of Settle and the Wilsons of Eshton.

The second floor exhibition space will use books and documents from the YAS's library and archives to let people discover more about life in the past in all parts of Yorkshire.

The exhibition aims to inspire people to think about how their own lives have been influenced by the past. And what will future generations make of us? The Museum of North Craven Life will be helping bringing the past alive through an exciting programme of linked events for all ages.
