Melrose History Quilt: 1898-2018

What was Melrose like in 1898?

A quilt with the names of more than 150 Melrose residents helps us understand how things have changed in 120 years… and how things are always the same.

The Melrose History Quilt collection is now available on our Digital Heritage website for your viewing pleasure!
