The first or top photograph in the DAR Library was taken looking up from the floor to the  balconies on one side. (Before Continental Hall was built, the society used what is now the DAR Library for all Continental Congresses) This may give our members something to look at and appreciate what the inside of our library looks like. In the first two pictures you can see the beautiful lay lights which have brought much beauty and light into the library.The third photo needed to be cropped due to not being able to get permission to post their pictures on the blog. There are tables and comfortable chairs for DAR members to research while in the library.The last photo is the famous oil painting of George Washington by Peale under the DAR Insignia. Photographs and article by Diane Kuebert, Brunswick Town Chapter DAR member.
