Historic Portraits

This is a new exhibit established in October of 2017. It is an expandable exhibit by design so that as more portraits are discovered, they can be added to the exhibit and to this page. We realized that we had more portraits initially than originally thought and nearly filled the entire exhibit right from the start! Good thing that the physical exhibit is expandable.
