With all of the hub-bub going on right now with the current election, I think people will see this as a break

- Chrystal Werger

Do you need a break from the politics of the moment?
The Dawson County Historical Society Museum would like to introduce you to the fun facts of politics past with its new Presidential Suite exhibit.
Museum Executive Director Chrystal Werger said it’s a fun showcase.

“We are really trying to show fun facts and maybe things you didn’t know,” Werger said. “With all of the hub-bub going on right now with the current election, I think people will see this as a break.”

Not only are presidential facts displayed, but also facts about the first ladies.

“People might be surprised to know that not all of the first ladies were the president’s wives,” Werg
er said.

If this piques your interest you might want to take a class that is being offered on Tuesday nights to delve a little deeper into presidential history.

The museum has also added to its Bill Barrett collection with items from his office in Lexington

“I was so pleased to go through some of the stuff the Congressman had in his law office in Lexington,” Werger said. “He said he just a had a few things, but it ended up being many things. Including gifts from dignitaries and picturIMG_7589es with presidents. I wish Bill would have gotten to see the final product.”

Barrett passed away on Sept. 20 in Lexington.
