Curator Larry Billings and Annella Burnham watched the Museum on Saturday. The special exhibit was items about England, as Larry loves English history. He has put books on the subject in the research library. Do consult the library when you visit.
The museum has two beautiful matching drop-leaf mahogany dining tables. They have several sets of dinner plates and a whole set of Chelseaware. There are a lot of small dishes from all over the world as well. Thus the porcelain collection is really quite impressive.
Curator Larry Billings got a print of the Governor's palace in Williamsburg. Some time it will make a good special exhibit at the museum. Larry also gave a poster to the museum.
Curator Larry gave a sign he painted years ago to the DUV to raise money for the soldiers monument. There are many worthwhile causes in every community. The Historical Society is one of them and he urges you to support it.
