Heads Up! Hat Museum Alert

Men's Fedoras and Dress Hats - Keenan Fur Felt FedoraIn this issue of Hat Life, editor Diane Feen gives us a write-up on The Hat Museum of Portland, Oregon. Self-described as America’s Only Hat Museum, the website blurb says it’s:

One of Oregon’s most unusual historic homes [that] has been transformed into Portland’s quirkiest attraction. The Ladd-Reingold House has a 100-year legacy of milliners and hat fanciers! (We’ve been bonkers for hats even longer than you have!)

Plan to be there for a while: there are more than 900 hats, from the 19th century up to the present, as well as period costumes with hats, and a story for each hat and each century.

Thanks for reading,
