#InaugurationDay will have performances by 2 #NewYorkers, @ladygaga & @jlo. In 1957, #MarianAnderson broke barriers as the 1st African American to perform at inauguration. More coming soon...stay tuned!

Before we adjourn for the day, we’d be remiss not to shout out our Sciuridae friends on #NationalSquirrelAppreciationDay.
We appreciate them so very much more when they stay *outside* of our historic buildings. (The attached was to celebrate a month squirrel free in 2018.)
We missed this great article on one of our favorite social media interactions. @USNatArchives monthly #ArchivesHashtagParty are wonderful ways for us all to see and share. Long live the hashtag party!
What the history of presidential inaugurations means for this week's unusual events - we discuss on Episode 263 of Past Present. Listen now!
We *love* sharing #HatPhoto images! One of the more fun files w/i our hatting photo collections is “Famous People Wearing Hats.” So if you’ll indulge us w/ 3 favorites... 1st is famed contralto #MarianAnderson in 1963 dedicating our Huntington Hall. #HatCityHistory
Our first-in anchor sponsor is @SBDanbury. Their continued support of not only the museum’s mission, but also our rehabilitation of the #IvesBirthplace, is a tangible legacy to the Danbury community. Thank you, #SavingsBankofDanbury! #HatCityBall2021
Today is quite the snack exacta— #NationalPopcornDay and #ArchivesBrewsday! (Really, we have not been partaking—our Dropbox is misbehaving thus this non-ideal photo!) Image from our 2018 #Prohibition exhibit of Ruppert’s Danbury bottling branch. 🍻🍿 #HatCityHistory
Happy Birthday to writer and poet #EdgarAllenPoe, who was born #OnThisDay in 1809. His home, the Poe Cottage, still stands in the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx.
