PHM Wins Prestigeous Award

The Friends of Poplar Hill Mansion were honored and grateful to receive the 2018 Heritage Interpretation Award for our Dr. Huston Surgery Room Exhibit from the Lower Eastern Shore Heritage Area Council (LESHC). We had several nominations for the award. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, including our Curator, Sarah Meyers for all her planning, research, design, and construction of the exhibit; the Board of Directors, especially Carol Smith who assisted with the research and design; the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum in Fenwick Island, DE and the Estate of Dr. George Yokum, for loaning several of the early 19th Century medical artifacts; the City of Salisbury for their support and help with the heavy lifting (quite literally); and last, but not at all least, the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore who manages our Bobbi Biron/Bertha Lewis Endowment and without which we could not have done this exhibit.
