    King Philip's War Club
    Wampanoag US - Northeast
    In 1913 Dr. Warren King Moorehead learned that Mrs. Laura Daniels had in her possession King Philip's War Club. Apparently, she is descended from the Rev. John Checkley, a Church of England clergyman who became a missionary to the Indians in Providence. As the story goes, he secured the relic along with a pipe and a belt from the Indian (Alderman) who shot Philip in 1676. The club was handed down from person to person to Mrs. Laura Anne Daniels (maiden name Fuller) of Union, Maine. Miss Clara Endicott Sears purchased the club in 1930. It was stolen from the Fruitlands Museums in 1970. And, in the summer of 1995, it was returned to the museum.
    White Birch
      US - Northeast
    The graceful white birch, often planted in yards as an ornamental tree, is native to the Connecticut River Valley. This species grows wild throughout northern North America, and can be found in woods, most easily identified by its pure white bark that peels off the trunk in thin, paper-like layers. Another of this plant's common names, paper birch, and its scientific name, Betula papyrifera, which means paper- bearing birch, reflect the paper-like nature of the tree's outer bark.
