Description

Preserving the Past: Early American Object Collecting

Collection Review

Tuesday, January 22

2:30pm


Philadelphia was the center for early American object collections, with Pierre du Simitiere’s American Museum, the Library Company, and Peale’s Museum. In the 19th century, people often collected and saved pieces of American history through relics. George Washington’s hair, snippets of the Star Spangled Banner, and other examples from the Library Company’s collection will be displayed.
