Historic PURSE-onality Exhibit
Ongoing through November 20, 2016: When it comes to accessories that make or break an outfit, the purse is one accessory that evolved from a simple bag to an elaborate alter ego. Handbag, purse, satchel, clutch, carryall, or pocket book, whatever you call it, this item has had a place in someone's hand throughout the ages. Check out the exhibit at the Old Courthouse Museum!

Falls Fuel: Full Service Gas and Oil Exhibit
Ongoing through October 15, 2017: Petroleum has been a daily part of American life since crude oil was refined into kerosene for lamps to light homes during the 19th century. Often called Black Gold, petroleum is used today to make many everyday items such as plastics, cosmetics, tires, and of course gasoline. Gasoline was once just a by-product in the production of kerosene, but after the automobile became popular in the early 1900s, the demand for gasoline skyrocketed. Over time, gas station design in the United States evolved with changes in drivers, cars, and cities.

After months of anticipation, Stones Throw Brewing Co. opened for business in April 2016, marking itself as Bellingham’s 10th brewery in operation. The name “Stones Throw” comes from the idea that its Larrabee Avenue location is the “closest pint to adventure.” Just a “stones throw” away from the Interurban Trail, Boulevard Park, downtown Bellingham, and Chuckanut Drive, the venue appeals to beer lovers and adventurists alike. Stones Throw is owned by Jack Pflueger and Tony Luciano, the latter of whom is also the brewer.
