Miniature presidential homes
in needlepoint will be on display at the Mount Pulaski Historical
Museum from June 30 to July 4.
The work was done by artisan
Marilyn Daleburn of Prospect Heights.
Daleburn is remarkable for her knowledge of the presidents' homes,
uniquely creating these needlepoint replicas. An informational
brochure will be handed out to visitors. Marilyn has created
over 125 houses, but due to space limitations, she will bring only
selected ones, such as those of Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington and Kennedy, and
unique homes, such as John Tyler's. She recently created New Salem and
will bring it for the display.
