Support the Wenham Museum and the Patton Family Archives
with a Limited Edition First-Run Challenge Coin  
The front of the coin includes a color portrait of Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. and his son, Maj. Gen. George S. Patton as Generals (which never happened at the same time) painted by Dean Haven in 2003.  The artist intended to show that father approved of the son, even though the father died in 1945 before his son graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1946. The Pattons were the first to both command the same division in U.S. Army history, the 2nd Armor Division.
The reverse side of the coin bears an image of the Patton Homestead, formerly known as “Green Meadows.” Built in 1786, the Homestead was purchased in 1928 by Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. and his wife, Beatrice. She resided there until her death in 1953. In 1980, Maj. Gen. George S. Patton made the Homestead the permanent family home. He resided there until his death in 2004. In 2012, his widow, Joanne H. Patton, donated the house and 27 surrounding acres to the Town of Hamilton.   
This challenge coin comes with a black velvet drawstring keepsake bag. Gift boxes are available for an additional fee of $2.00 per box.
