George Washington Letter Unveiled
Raynham Hall Museum is reaching up into the heady stratosphere of being a first class museum. Board President Frances Mortati described the recent discovery of an original George Washington letter in the collection as very exciting. "The museum is going to get more prominence, especially when we let the Library of Congress know of the find because they have two letters that were written - all as a part of a series as is this one. They are all relevant to getting more troops during the Revolutionary War," said Ms. Mortati.

It left after the opening ceremony and the "Gator" stayed for the rest of the day as the Juniors helped keep the kids cool with a gentle spray.
