WV-150 Sesquicentennial Exhibit

West Virginia's First Ladies

first lady exhibit
Charleston ceramic artist Edna Henderson (1916-99) created 28 first lady dolls for the inauguration of the
Cultural Center in 1976. An exhibit in south end of the Cultural Center balcony examines the evolving role of
West Virginia's first ladies and features the popular ceramic doll collection. The display also includes
fine china and silver used in the Governor's Mansion and elegant dresses worn by several first ladies.
