Gallery Talks - 2016-2017 - The Presidents at the Monmouth County Shore
The continuation of our Gallery Talks series with a discussion of the 2016-2017 Richmond Gallery exhibition, The Presidents at the Monmouth County Shore. One hundred years ago, in September, 1916, 25,000 people gathered on the grounds of what is today Monmouth University—then a private estate called Shadow Lawn—to see Woodrow Wilson officially accept the nomination of the Democratic Party for a second Presidential run. Wilson was following a popular tradition among American Presidents to retreat to our slice of the Jersey Shore to escape the heat and hubbub of Washington. This exhibit told the wide-ranging stories of thirteen Presidents who spent time here, at the Monmouth County shore.

Peggy Dellinger, Exhibit Director of the Township of Ocean Historical Museum discusses the exhibition; Produced by Ted Dellinger; Music is by Bill Madden.

The Township of Ocean Historical Museum is a 501(c)(3) charity, and a 100% volunteer organization, that tells the story of Coastal Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA.

Funding for Gallery Talks was provided by the New Jersey Cultural Trust.
