The Naugatuck History Museum at the Tuttle House is excited to be hosting the Acorn Button Club Antique Roadshow on April 23 @ 2 p.m. This program is free and open to the public and will be held at the Naugatuck History Museum at the Tuttle House. The Tuttle House is the backdrop for this exhibit. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 1882 Queen Anne-style mansion provides an authentic space to tell the story of invention and enterprise that created employment for many and great wealth for the few. It is located on 380 Church Street in Naugatuck.
The Acorn Button Club will share a collection of antique buttons, their history, and the art of button making. Guests are invited to bring in their own buttons and discover the history and craft that went into making the button.
The Acorn Button Club is dedicated to sharing and preserving the amazing history of these tiny pieces of art. Naugatuck’s own button history goes back to before this town was even called “Naugatuck.”
