HOUGHTON -- The Carnegie Museum will hold an opening reception for its newest exhibit, "The Making of Modern Houghton: 1940 - 2015," from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. TONIGHT, Tuesday, Nov. 3.

This exhibit was created from the research done by seven Michigan Tech students in Dr. Carol MacLennan’s Spring 2014 Ethnographic Methods class. The museum has since turned their research papers into an exhibit looking at the changes to the City and the Campus that helped redefine Houghton for its second century. This body of work will be used as the foundation for part of a future permanent exhibit, about the history of the city of Houghton, that the museum plans to install downstairs in the Community Room.

Take a walk down memory lane and learn how the Village of Houghton grew into the City that we know today. Meet Professor MacLennan and some of the students that created the exhibit. Refreshments will be served.

The Carnegie Museum is at 105 Huron St., at the corner of Huron and Montezuma. Regular hours are Tuesday and Thursday Noon to 5 p.m. (open later for exhibits and events) and Saturday Noon to 4 p.m. Free admission. Call 482-7140 for more information.
