The Conference House Association's "Coming to America" exhibit provides visitors reflection on the American immigrant experience from Colonial days to the present.
Visitors to the exhibit are invited to step into the life of a newly-arrived immigrant through the door of some personal artifacts. Historic regional maps and artistic world maps help relate the story. The exhibit includes a world map with the heading, "Where are you from?" . Visitors may engage in each other’s stories…the American story!
