Seventh Day Baptist Historical Museum

This is what I've been working on this spring and summer [after procrastinating for almost two years], and it is essentially done apart from a few details. Nick Kersten, SDB Historian at SDB Exec:
The Seventh Day Baptist Historical Society is proud to announce that a new exhibit is open at the Seventh Day Baptist Center. The exhibit is a walk-through history of Seventh Day Baptists, including artifacts and photographs from more than 350 years of SDB history. For those travelling to General Conference or World Federation, the exhibit will be open in conjunction with the Open House at the SDB Center on Sabbath day, August 2, from 2:00-3:30pm. You are cordially invited to attend and see this new exhibit!
It was a very interesting project and I learned a great deal more than I already knew — and corrected some misunderstandings, too. I got a lot of help from Nick and from Historian Emeritus, Rev. Don Sanford. I couldn't have done it without Don's books. I'm sure there are errors that will need to be corrected and, of course, any of those would be mine. Now comes the interesting part. I made choices about what to exhibit and how to describe everything. Have I given offense? If I have, I hope to hear about it, and if corrections need to be made, they will be.
