KCC history students to exhibit “Tablescapes” at the Kimball House Museum starting Nov. 18

Kellogg Community College history students are curating an exhibit of food-related items on display at the Kimball House Museum in Battle Creek, opening this month.

“Tablescapes: A Culinary History of Kimball House” opens Saturday, Nov. 18, for viewing from 1 to 4 p.m. at the museum, which is located at 196 Capital Ave. NE. Admission is $5 per person, but individuals 12 and under get in free.

The exhibit was planned and curated by Fall 2023 HIST 210: History of Michigan students at KCC as part of the class’s embedded experiential service-learning requirement.

It includes historical items of significance owned by the Kimball family or donated to the museum, and will be on display through the end of the spring semester, when a new HIST 210 exhibit will take its place.

The Kimball House Museum is a historical home built in 1886 by Dr. Arthur Herbert Kimball and later donated to the city of Battle Creek to be used as a community museum.
