Germantown Historical Society opens Charley Ross exhibit

This was sent to me by my cousin Dejah. (Hi, Dejah!) The Germantown Historical Society in Pennsylvania has opened an exhibit on the ransom kidnapping of four-year-old Charley Ross, for whom the Charley Project is named. It includes all the original ransom notes.

Why the exhibit is called “Kidnapped: Lost and Found” I do not know, seeing as how Charley was never found.

    Wish this was closer to me in PA, I’d love to go there!

      Unfortunately I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go there; I’m from on the wrong side of Ohio, near Indiana, not Pennsylvania. But I’ve been to Philly a few times and might go again sometime. Of course if I do visit the exhibit I’ll tell the museum people about the Charley Project and give them a few of my business cards. 🙂

    Have you ever been to the Connecticut Glass Museum to see the Charley Ross glass bottle?

      No. I wasn’t aware that the museum, or the bottle, existed.
