Join Elizabeth Lay from Montgomery History and Krista McKim of Rockville High School

for a behind-the-scenes look at the collaborative exhibit 

Migrate with Us:

Through the Journeys of Those Living in Montgomery County

A Rockville High School Exhibit in Collaboration with Montgomery History 


This multimedia, interactive exhibit was developed by students in McKim’s AP Language and Composition classes and tells the stories of how the students’ families came to Montgomery County. Illustrated with family photos and inspirational interviews, the exhibit offers a powerful window into the immigrant experience as well as a look at what draws people from every corner of the world and across the United States to make a home in Montgomery County.

For our first Coffee with the Curator event on May 8, 2018,  Elizabeth Lay, curator, and leading textile historian, met with members to learn about Montgomery History’s 2,500-piece collection of textiles, one of the finest in the entire Washington, DC region.


After enjoying coffee and refreshments, Liz gave a close-up look at some of the most distinctive quilts and American coverlets in the collection.
