CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Marshall Center School will present a talk at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24, about the "abc Project" creation of clothing from the 1920s in the historic one-room school at the University of Northern Iowa.

The Friends of the UNI Museum invite participants to the historic schoolhouse to see and touch reproduction clothing from the era worn by Iowa citizens in the learning centers all around the state. Research from historical societies and museums from seven counties helped show a slice of life in Iowa.

This is the sixth offering in the Friends of UNI Museum Rural Schoolhouse Speaker Series. All Speaker Series presentations are open to the public, and there is no admission fee. Free parking on campus is also available for this event.
