The OAHS "Loaning Closet"
PIONEER CLOTHING PROJECT and WAX MUSEUM PROJECT
The Oregon Area Historical Society supports students in the Oregon Wisconsin School District by providing pioneer clothing for their "pioneer days" projects and studies. Fourth grade students and teachers are outfitted with pioneer costumes made and maintained by OAHS volunteers.
Clothing is also made available for other historically-related activities of the Oregon schools and our community. We are currently expanding and adding more clothing to our collection for the fifth grader's "wax museum" presentations and other portrayals of historical figures.
About 400 students per year have been outfitted with pioneer costumes. We are always in need of volunteers for sewing projects and assisting in outfitting the students.
