#InaugurationDay will have performances by 2 #NewYorkers, @ladygaga & @jlo. In 1957, #MarianAnderson broke barriers as the 1st African American to perform at inauguration. More coming soon...stay tuned!

Before we adjourn for the day, we’d be remiss not to shout out our Sciuridae friends on #NationalSquirrelAppreciationDay.
We appreciate them so very much more when they stay *outside* of our historic buildings. (The attached was to celebrate a month squirrel free in 2018.)

Wear a hat, Senator! (It’s cold out!) (Pat & Bill’s Tavern on White St, ca 1952 “If you’re selling, wear a hat! Danbury—Hat Center of the World”); 1950 Hat Parade on Main Street. (We ❤️ a meme!) #HatCityHistory #InaugurationDay #BernieSanders

And last but by no means least, this iconic image of Danbury’s own #CharlesIves in his ubiquitous fedora. #HatPhotos #HatCityHistory

We also love this Sept 1920 image by local photographer of record, Frank H Baisley. Mr Roosevelt’s hat seems perhaps not to have been properly fitted, but a great photo-op nonetheless. #HatPhoto #HatCityHistory

Tagging @DanburyMuseum which has lots and lots of #HatPhoto images, represented in decades of #FamilyHistory photos of people all over America. Want to post a fave #HatCity photo?

We *love* sharing #HatPhoto images! One of the more fun files w/i our hatting photo collections is “Famous People Wearing Hats.” So if you’ll indulge us w/ 3 favorites... 1st is famed contralto #MarianAnderson in 1963 dedicating our Huntington Hall. #HatCityHistory
