This exhibition took place at Sewerby Hall between 27.06.09 and 27.10.09. It explored the history of the estate since the Corporation bought it from the Greame family in 1934 up to the present date. Interviews with employees and visitors past and present charted the changes during those 75 years, and photographs, guide books and personal objects were displayed to bring the history to life.
