Willie Cousins was quite a storyteller. Imagine sitting with Willie, hearing him recall his life on Lopez—how the earliest Lopezians came to the island, how people lived, and intimate details about his favorite characters.
Signature quilts are invaluable community records. Their popularity grew in America in the 19th century as a way to support a variety of causes. This project, by Anne Dawson, Laurie Latta and Karen Alexander gave our island community an opportunity to create a modern signature quilt! We invite you to visit the museum to see this beautiful quilt, which features nearly 600 signatures.
