Mohawk Trail 100th
The Mohawk Trail 100th Anniversary is
the topic of our exhibit.
Partly curated by BART intern Olivia Falandes, the new exhibit
presents memorabilia, souvenirs, postcards and printed materials
on the history of the scenic byway. Because the Visitors Museum
in Building 4 is also honoring the centennial of the official
dedication of the modern highway, the NAHS exhibit emphasizes
the Pageant presented over four days in June of 1914, starring a
cast of over 1000 with a total of 10,000 viewers in the
audience. The exhibit coincides with the actual date of the
original dedication ceremony October 22.
The exhibit will be displayed
starting in September in
our first floor temporary gallery.
