Parlor Talk with Kai Battenberg

Please join us on Tuesday, July 23rd at the historic McConnell Mansion for a Parlor Talk featuring Kai Battenberg from the University of Idaho Herbarium. Learn more about Clara Ransom, an influential early Moscow resident and UI graduate with a Master’s in Botany whose plant collections survived the 1906 Administration Building fire and are preserved to this day at the Herbarium. Doors open at 5:30pm with the program beginning at 6pm. This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

The Parlor Talks series is part of our current exhibit, “Those Wacky Victorians: Early 1800s Hobbies,” open now through October at the McConnell Mansion. From fly tying to art made of human hair, the cabinet of curiosities to a particular fascination with spiritualism, you’ll learn all about the diversions and amusements enjoyed by people of the 1800s. The Mansion is located at 110 South Adams St in Moscow, and can be visited Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 4pm, and some Saturdays.
