August 2023: Postcards From Strawberry

August: the last month of summer, when many of us are snatching up our last chance for a summer vacation or staycation. One age-old vacation tradition is postcards. Historical postcards can be an eyecatching peek into the culture of leisure and tourism in previous decades, and show how a destination like Historic Strawberry Mansion has evolved over the years. The postcards in our archives document the visual history of the Mansion and how visitors have enjoyed it through the decades. Here are a few of them, plus a “postcard” from the board describing some highlights of Strawberry in the summer. Whether you’re vacationing or staycationing, we hope you enjoy this glimpse into our past and come see us in person soon!
