The Ailman Family in Silver City - Exhibit Opening
Saturday, December 20, 1:00-3:00pm

Welcome to H. B. Ailman's pioneering adventures and life in the Gila in the late 1800s. In 1881 Ailman built the home that now houses the Silver City Museum. The parlor has been designed for guests to actually use the vintage and reproduction furniture and games, and experience what a fine home in Silver City would have been like in the 1890s. Parlors were used to express wealth and for entertaining guests. Meet Mr. Ailman in person during the opening! [ Press Release ]
