NC museum to display Ann McCrory's inaugural gown


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina first lady Ann McCrory is turning over her inaugural gown to the N.C. Museum of History, which will include it in an exhibition about governors and their spouses.

Ann McCrory's gown will be on display Wednesday evening during an event for History Museum associates. After that, it will be featured in the exhibit "Leading the State: North Carolina's Governors," which ends April 28.

During the event Wednesday, Gov. Pat McCrory will speak briefly with the N.C. Museum of History Benefactors Circle and the Gold Quill Society.

The museum has presented an exhibit to coincide with the inauguration of each governor since 1957 except for 1993, when the museum was moving.
