Happy Saturday! And a special Saturday it is!
In the 1976 Led Zeppelin film "The Song Remains The Same" Robert Plant quietly voices to his bandmates, "All right, here we go!" And here we go as we celebrate fully reopening the Museum this weekend! We will be here today, Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and tomorrow, Sunday, from 1-5 p.m. Come in and see our new look, new displays, and our newest addition, the 1899 Morse Car! I am looking forward to greeting you as we "get up to speed."
Rear view of our Morse! The engine is housed in the enclosure right behind the canopy.
New exhibits include the Morse family and information on the Morse autos!
Friday morning we hosted The Victorian Society, a summer program for architects, and with Professor Richard Guy Wilson from the University of Virginia led the group of about 30 people in a tour of the Richardson buildings and Unity Church. This is the first tour we have done for them in three years because of Covid. Several people from Europe, as well as one from the Netherlands, were part of this outstanding group.
Wishing you all the best, and hoping to see you soon,
Curator: Frank Meninno
