The Morris County Tourism Bureau will feature a close look at American Presidents and First Ladies during the annual curator’s presentation at the  Morristown National Historical Park in Morristown on Saturday, July 28 at 10 a.m.

Jude Pfister, author and Chief of Cultural Resources at the National Park, will present items from the archives and collections associated with American presidents and their first ladies.

The museum interprets the story of the Continental Army’s time in Morristown during the Revolutionary War. But in this program, Pfister will explore other people and time periods by displaying and discussing fascinating items which never see the light of day.
