What's the Story on that Wallpaper?

We are frequently asked this question about the unique wallpaper in Monmouth's foyer, so I thought I'd post the answer here. I've included a photo, as well, in the event you have never been to Monmouth.

The foyer wallpaper, called "Scenic America," was made by Zuber in France; it's the same as that hanging in the president's private quarters in the White House. Mr. Zuber's unique interpretation and creative license is readily evident in some of the historic scenes, since at the time he was commissioned to create the wallpaper, he had never been here.
