In honor of Presidents Day, The Museum of Cape May County is hosting an exhibit, “Hail to the Chiefs!” that highlights more than 15 of our nation’s leaders, including two of our nation’s finest presidents – George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
On display are artifacts from The Museum’s collections as well as from a private collector that bring these patriotic men to life. Many of the privately owned artifacts have never before been on public display.
This exhibit features original documents such as letters, ambassadorships and presidential pardons. Books bearing presidential autographs are also on display. Many pieces of artwork depicting Lincoln and Washington are showcased as part of the exhibition. Also on display are two exquisite dolls dating back to the 18th century depicting the likeness of George Washington and his wife, Martha.
“The museum has many presidential artifacts in its collection,” said Museum Director Donna Matalucci. “What better time than Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthday to showcase these magnificent pieces of history?”
“Hail to the Chiefs!” runs from Feb. 2 through March 2. The exhibit is in The Museum’s gallery, located in the Administrative Building. Hours are Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Admission is free.
