Perry-Fiske’s hat collection on display
Celebrate spring at the Anna Ranch Heritage Center in Waimea, where a special display of the late rancher Anna Lindsey Perry-Fiske’s hats is up through the end of April. It’s free to see the hats, but if you wear your own favorite hat, you can also take a tour of the historical home for half price, or $5. Tours are held Tuesday-Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Perry-Fiske’s hats are created of materials ranging from organza to felt, to velvet, to straw, and with decorations ranging from feathers to flowers, wheat to ribbons, according to center docent Barbara Sterne, who coordinates the annual exhibit.
The spring hat display features creations by Ukrainian-born style icon and noted designer Irina Roublon, mid-20th century designer Frank Olive, Miss Bierner, Sally Victor, Patrice of Germany, Edna Wallace-“Trikki,” Emma Inc. and Henry Pollack.
“The hat display will be brimming with information that will be sure to go to your head,” said Sterne.
For more information regarding the spring hat display, please contact Anna Ranch Heritage Center at 885-4426 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The heritage center is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call for special times for bigger groups. Anna Ranch has public parking and restrooms for large groups.
Enjoy the center’s newly completed Discovery Trail, which takes visitors on a self-guided tour of the historic property. Stop and visit and observe the onsite blacksmith, Ethan Froney, and master saddlemaker Albert Moniz. Donations are always welcome. The center is at 65-1480 Kawaihae Road.
