Before Prohibition, there was temperance. In reaction to increasing consumption of alcohol in the 1800s, many people began to express concerns about the social effects of drinking. The Temperance Movement gained popularity in the 1850s and became a significant moral and political force by 1900. “Demon Rum and Cold Water: The Two Sides of Temperance” will present the causes for temperance, the role of its proponents in American society, and how the Hayeses were shaped by and helped shape the movement. Access to the exhibit is included with regular admission. Members are admitted for free.
