The RCHS museum contains a compelling collection of intriguing objects. While we are able to show documentation or provenance for some of these thought-provoking pieces, others that have been passed down along with oral histories from the families who donated them. This program will look at a few of our quirkier objects, including a bed that allegedly was slept in by Aaron Burr, human hair jewelry and china upon which meals were served to four sitting presidents. Experience the objects and hear the stories of how RCHS acquired these pieces. This program will make you want to search your own attic for family tales and relics!
