Key Bank Hosts Kurn Hattin Historical Exhibit
An exhibit commemorating the 125th anniversary of the founding of Kurn Hattin Homes for Children is on display at Key Bank on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont.
The 11-panel exhibit, A Legacy of Caring: Adapting to the changing needs of children and families, featuring a curated selection of photos and documents from Kurn Hattin Homes’ archives, dating from the late 1800s through the present is being displayed throughout the region with its first stop at the Brattleboro Key Bank. The exhibit tells the story of Kurn Hattin’s founding and development within the context of major events in Vermont and U.S. history, as well as the significant trends in the fields of child care, education, and social services since the turn of the 19th century that have helped to shape the organization’s philosophy and approach.
“I was very impressed with the scope of what Kurn Hattin does and how important it is to our local communities in Vermont, New Hampshire, and beyond. The work your organization does is unique and incredibly impactful for our youth,” said Andrew Richardson, Manager of Brattleboro Key Bank after a recent tour of the Homes.
Key Bank generously offers the display space to area non-profits and community organizations to promote special events, and to generate awareness of the many important programs in the area. The Kurn Hattin exhibit is on display until April 8, 2019.
