Celebrating our 25th Anniversary!
The Friends of Sagamore Hill recently paid for the restoration of the original door knocker on the front door of the Old Orchard Museum. This is what it looked like prior to restoration.
And this is what it looks like now!
The Sagamore Hill NHS did not own any document on Sagamore Hill letterhead. Above is a manuscript page from a speech TR gave in 1902 on the trusts in Cincinnati. The Friends of Sagamore Hill purchased it and donated it to the NHS collection.
The Friends of Sagamore Hill purchased and then donated this plaster cast of Theodore Roosevelt's death mask, done in 1919 and taken from the initial plaster bandages by James E. Fraser
Here is a side view of the same plaster cast.
Along with the death mask, The Friends of Sagamore Hill also helped preserve and protect the plaster cast of Theodore Roosevelt's right hand, also done by James E. Fraser.
