|Program:||Leonard Augsberger and Joel Orosz on Images of the First Mint: The Numismatic Legacy of Frank H. Stewart
In 1792, the newly formed American government commissioned its first building — the United States Mint on Seventh Street in Philadelphia. Over one hundred years later, Philadelphian Frank H. Stewart purchased the now worn out property, attempted to preserve it as a historical site, and in the end bowed to the interests of commerce and razed the building in order to erect a functional factory for his rapidly expanding electrical business. But Stewart was not a mercenary businessman hell bent on destroying history in order to progress the future. In the wake of the first mint excavation Stewart left behind a thoughtful trail of images and artifacts, which until now have never been thoroughly investigated. In this presentation we revisit the iconography and relics that Stewart not only preserved but promoted with much vigor, greatly desiring that the history of the first mint be shared with future generations, reflecting the vision of the Founding Fathers in creating this, the first building of the United States.
