Can You Hear Me? Now? exhibition

BCHS recently opened a new exhibition in the first floor gallery called "Can You Hear Me? Now?" The exhibition, which features musical instruments from the American Civil War and the DeMoss Lyric Bards, radios, televisions, telephones, flutes from around the world, and recording & playback devices, will be open for one year. Come see how technology has changed in the past 100 years, and try some of the interactive exhibitions, including a telephone "party line", an oscilloscope, a morse code telegraph, and and mp3 player programmed with many sounds that represent artifacts and eras presented throughout the gallery.
