Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the era of Prohibition, when America went “dry.”

During the era of Prohibition, Americans no longer could manufacture, sell, or transport intoxicating beverages from 1920 until 1933. Spirited: Prohibition in America, a new exhibition opening next month at The History Center explores this tumultuous time in American history, when flappers and suffragists, bootleggers and temperance lobbyists, and legends, such as Al Capone and Carry Nation, took sides in this battle against the bottle.
 
The Spirited exhibit will open to the public starting Saturday, June 19.
Beginning June 19, museum hours are as follows:
Tuesday 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Thursday 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Friday 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Saturday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
