Description: Bundling up in the winter season requires you and your family to put on a warm hat. Come see of the other types of hats people wore over the years in order to keep warm or just to keep fashion savvy at the "If the Hat Fits" - history through head wear exhibit. This exhibit showcases hats throughout time, including the top hat, the bowler, the pill box and the panama hat, among others. Each hat from the collection of 19 pieces tells a story about changing styles, local history, and the world at large. Photographs accompany the display, including some historical photos of Bayside.
