“This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to display my collections in my hometown,” Hoover said.

.

Hoover’s exhibit has been on tour for 11 years, making appearances at historical sites or community organizations including Fort Pitt, the Venango County Historical Society, the Kittanning Tourist Bureau, Old Bedford Village, the Cumberland County Historical Society and the Lorenzo Cultural Center for the Historical Society of Michigan. The museum-quality exhibit won the National Educational Award at the Collector’s Cup Competition in Pittsburgh in spring 2004.
