The Lee Family Arch

The Lee Family Arch welcomes our visitors with a fascinating archway of sea shells, gems, beads, crystals, stones, pearls, marbles, Mom and Dad's watches, stick pins, earrings, Lee Company lapel pins, tie tacks, and even a minnow. These are actual family momentos and other items that represent the rest of the generous, creative, and supportive family members and friends of Museum Founder and Curator, Marietta Lee; such as her parents, Leighton and Marietta Lee; her five brothers; Aunt Bev; Cousin Newy;  Grandmother and  Grandfather Fagan.  This arch was created to honor them and all of the ongoing hard work of the Lee and Fagan Families that made this Museum possible.
