The Cape Charles Historical Society, in cooperation with the Cape Charles Rosenwald School Preservation Initiative and the Northampton Heritage Weekend, is looking for community involvement and assistance in identifying and collecting items for inclusion in a new exhibit installation in the Cape Charles Museum opening the Summer of 2017. We are looking for images, photographs, school papers and books, instructional artifacts like maps and wall hangings, school furniture such as desks and chairs, diplomas, report cards, and other school-related memorabilia from the historic Cape Charles Elementary School.
The first Artifacts Open House is on Monday, September 26th, from 10am-3pm. The director, museum volunteers, and staff will be on hand to scan items for the digital archives as well as accept physical items for loan or donation. All items will be documented, acknowledged in writing, and fully insured by the historical society.
