The Herb Schlatter Gallery

Welcome to the Herb Schlatter Gallery.

Herb was a volunteer and trustee at the Museum since its early beginnings. Herb was always there on Saturday mornings to give tours and greet visitors. He was very excited about the opening of the new space which we have named in his honor. For the past several years Herb would ask people, “When are we getting the game room?” The answer was always, “soon.” Shortly before his passing we acquired the new space and begin working on bringing it all together. The walls were stripped, new dry wall put up and painted. The carpeting was removed and the floor scrubbed and sanded. A lot of work went in to getting this new space ready and we think Herb would have been extremely happy with the final results.

The gallery was opened on April 6, 2016, and a formal dedication took place on April 23, 2016. We hope you enjoy this new gallery as much as we know Herb would’ve enjoyed showing it to you.

"The Pine Tree Flag" This flag is known as the Pine Tree Flag, the "Appeal to God" Flag, the Liberty Tree Flag, and the George Washington Cruisers Flag. It is one of the first, if not the first, of the flags to become famous to those of the American Revolution. The flag was created before or during 1775, and it was used by the New England Colonies, especially Massachusetts. Naval ships and soldiers under General George Washington's command also carried these colors. Photo Credit: Blair Carroll
