The Eisenhower flag exhibit attracted 1,000 visitors in 4 days! The comments on the exhibit and the accompanying photos and narrative were most rewarding. Our thanks to ALL who attended and supported this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit!

We are setting up the Eisenhower Oval Office Flag exhibit on Tuesday. These flags are fabulous works of art from the 1950s... a must see: 10-13 October 2012 from 9am to 9pm daily. After this exhibit they go back to their owner's vaults probably NEVER to be seen again.

For the first time in history all six original flags from the White House during President Eisenhower’s administration will be together in a single exhibit from October 10 to 13 in Columbus, North Carolina. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States (1953 to 1961), was the only President in our Nation’s history to serve under three different President’s flags. The exhibit includes 48-star, 49-star, and 50-star President’s flags and the corresponding U.S. colors.

One of a kind – The 49-star President’s Oval Office flag, hand made at the US Army Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot in 1958, will be on public display for the first time since leaving the White House in 1960. This priceless hand embroidered silk President’s flag featuring 49 stars representing Alaska’s statehood in January 1959 may be the only one of its kind ever made.

The 50-star U.S. flag on display is the actual flag unveiled in the White House Cabinet Room when Hawaii became our 50th state in August 1959.
