The display All About Turkeys, located on the first floor in the Learning Commons, provides facts about the history of the turkey and how this now iconic bird has been integrated as a national symbol of Thanksgiving. This display also includes information about the annual presidential pardoning of the turkey, and visual guides of turkey distribution across the Unites States.
Located next to All about Turkeys, the display Thanksgiving Declared a Holiday attracts students and viewers alike with historical information of how Thanksgiving became what it is today. The processes and developments of how the Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789 was created are available to view.
Have A Happy Thanksgiving, located on the third floor in Taylor Mezzanine, displays an artistic array of autumn flowers and leaves, capturing the essence of November in a developed and informative way. Books about Thanksgiving are displayed and provide information about the harvest feast for viewers.
