The stuffed armadillo in the Atheaneum's collection would have been a great curiosity in New England in the 1820s.

As part of the bicentennial, we are celebrating the Portsmouth Athenaeum's many treasures and its Proprietors with an exhibition in five parts curated by members of the Arts Athenaeum Exhibits Committee.
