Palace collection connects people to the past | collection, historical |

Palace collection connects people to the past:
A scrapbook collected by Tryon Palace's first curator,
Gregor Norman-Wilcox and his wife, Grace
"The exhibit includes objects large and small, elegant and average that give view to some aspect of the past – some exploit, character or story.

“Our theme is the why, what and how of why we collect,” Packer said. “People make connections to the past through objects. We’re trying to tell interesting stories through the objects, which is why we have everything from a boat to furniture to architecture to silver.”"
