Recent Additions to the Collection at the DAR Museum
This exhibit is a collection of “telling little details;” details of lives, of skills, of movements and communities. The 60 objects, which we recently added to our collection, are organized to present a few of the characteristics we consider when we choose to collect an item. One overall theme that joins all together is the desire to understand. Objects help us gain a better comprehension of how our ancestors lived and worked; how they created communities and how, when the need arose, changed their way of life.
