A History of Lebanon County in 50 Objects

A History of Lebanon County in 50 Objects tells a history of Lebanon County through the artifacts and documents housed exclusively in the Society’s museum, library, and archives.  Inspired by the British Museum’s “A History of the World in 100 Objects”, this special virtual exhibition was created by recent graduates (class of 2013)  of the Digital Communications Department at Lebanon Valley College:  Sheila Betz, Danielle Biggs and Kevin Greene.  The goal of this project is to help highlight and promote the history of the county, and generate interest in the Society and its wonderful collections.  The objects are arranged chronologically, ranging from the earliest Native American arrowheads to the most recent donation, a stained glass window made by local artist Franklin L. Weidman, celebrating the county’s 2013 bicentennial.  The photographs are professionally taken by Art Clagett, a member of the Board of Trustees.  The Society is extremely grateful for the numerous hours of work that Art has donated for this project.  [click here to visit the virtual exhibition]
