The Palmerton Area Historical Society at its Heritage Center, Delaware Avenue, Palmerton, will be holding an open house on May 5 to introduce a display of hats.

The open house will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. and will feature the hat collections of Jane Grove and Dale Freudenberger who will be on hand to talk about their collections.

In addition to the collections there are many hats owned by individuals. The hats will provide a journey through time with both men's and women's hats from antiques to more modern times.

Refreshments will be served.
