ESTHER COOLEY'S 1876 CENTENNIAL QUILT
Thanks to the generosity of the National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Institution Archives NCCHP has been able to obtain a high resolution photo of a quilt made by Granville-born Esther Elizabeth (Rose) Cooley to commemorate the Centennial celebration of the founding of the United States. We will exhibit a large format photo of the quilt alongside the quilt currently in the NCCHP collection. The Cooley quilt is currently in the National Quilt Collection and was last exhibited during the 1976 Bicentennial.
