Members Collection featured at Windsor Historical Society

The Windsor Historical Society and Museum is presenting its inaugural Members Collections featuring the collection of Bob and Edna Brooks Honsa.

The very first Members Collection is an amazing assortment of over 600 sets of Salt and Pepper shakers, (and this is not all). These shakers were collected by Bob's mother, Ynez Vanoni Honsa between the years of 1930 and 1970.

The shakers commemorate events, famous people and places. They come from all over the United States. They come from the four corners of the world. They run the gamut from utilitarian, to risque', to elegant, with just about everything in-between.

Bob and Edna are life-long residents of Windsor and long-time members of the Windsor Historical Society.  The collection will remain on display through March.
