“Lasting Legacy” Interpretive Exhibits in Perry County, Pennsylvania

By the year 2020, over 100 National Park Service style historical exhibits will be installed throughout Perry County. The Perry County Bicentennial Committee decided to begin the project several years ago, for the anniversary of Perry County’s legal establishment. Numerous interpretive panels have already been designed, manufactured, and installed through the county. Over 25 exhibits will be placed at Bicentennial Plaza, at the Lynn Sheaffer Dum Memorial Park.

The interpretive panels of the “Lasting Legacy” project tell the story of this unique county, which is bordered by three mountain ranges and the Susquehanna River, largely rural yet adjacent to Carlisle and Harrisburg. Perry County is roughly half the size of the state of Rhode Island, yet has only 1/20th the population.

“Through a bid process, and recommendations of PA DCNR, Pannier was chosen as the manufacturer for the interpretive exhibits… Virtually no government money was provided. The majority of the project was sponsored by individuals, civic clubs, churches, foundations and family groups.”  Perry County chose to use our durable Fiberglass Embedded (FE) panels, along with a variety of styles of exhibit bases and frames – Traditional T, Wall Mounted, and Upright styles.
