Photograph of Isaiah Everhart


May 18–Ongoing

The Founder’s Gallery showcases the life of Museum founder Dr. Isaiah F. Everhart, tracing his life from its beginnings in rural Southeastern Pennsylvania, through his career as a surgeon in the Civil War, to his settling in Scranton and establishment of the Museum that bears his name. Dr. Everhart’s story is told in his own words taken from journal entries; through objects from the Museum’s collection, including the many taxidermy specimens he completed; and through rarely seen photos from the Museum’s archives.

The Founder’s Gallery and opening reception are made possible through the generous gift of the Munley Family and the Munley Law Firm, in memory of Robert W. Munley.
