Mrs. J.C. Ferren’s Millinery, Dry and Fancy Goods Shop


The 2021 Exhibitions committee is busy planning the FHS museum’s summer exhibit: the recreation of Mrs. J. C. Ferren’s Millinery, Dry and Fancy Goods Shop, which operated between 1884 and 1904 in Freedom. 

Take a look at some of the photos our committee members have uncovered of the Ferren family of Freedom:

The Ferren family riding in horse carriage to an event (carriage says F. Ferren).
Mary Ferren’s son Frank with a wagon attached to car (1937).

Mary Ferren’s daughter, Ida Ferren Danforth, born 1863.

Minnie Danforth Towle, granddaughter of Mary Ferren, born in 1883.

The committee will continue to post updates on our progress as we get closer to the exhibit’s opening day, June 19th, 2021.
