Rome Visitor Center hosts vintage hat exhibit

ROME, Ga. -- In the spirit of the upcoming Steeplechase festivities, the Rome-Floyd Visitor Center and Last Stop Gift Shop are hosting an exhibit showcasing vintage hats.

The handmade hats are from longtime Rome resident Pauline Ware Neal's personal collection. They now belong to the Chieftains Museum and Major Ridge Home.

The ten hats were all made circa 1940 by a variety of millners.

The hat collection can be viewed all week at the Visitor Center, which is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
