#Throwbackthursday

WSHART

We were having a chat this week about Throwback Thursday’s and we thought… what a perfect way to share our past visits to heritage organisations and sites!

This week’s throwback takes us all the way to California: The William S. Hart Park and Museum.

Back in 2012 Susan spent three months volunteering at the museum and learnt a great deal about the Hollywood actor Bill Hart and his love for all things Western!

One of her favourite days (there were so many!) was when she took part in the preventative conservation for the house by assisting with the cleaning of artefacts in the public rooms.

It was a great place to visit and is truly a wonderful gift bestowed on the public by Mr Hart himself!
