The San Benito Historical Society, a member of the Museums of San Benito, announced its newest temporary exhibit, Top of the World: Men’s Hats from Around the Globe.

This exhibit is located in the hallway display case and will run through June 29. The exhibit is available for viewing during normal hours of the San Benito Community Building, located at 210 E. Heywood St., where the museums are located, in addition to normal museum hours.

Featuring pieces from the L.T. Boswell collection, 13 hats represent four continents and eight different countries. Styles range from traditional to everyday wear and all feature exquisite craftsmanship. The hats were collected by Boswell during his many travels over the years and were his souvenir of choice.

If you have a small collection and would like for it to be featured in one of the display cases, or for more information about the Museums of San Benito or Resaca Books and Gifts, the programs or membership options, call (956) 399-9991 or email
