Ever notice the Presidential Seal ?

By an Act of Congress

the Museum was granted   permission to use the     Presidential Seal

in  

recognition of its

significance to the

U.S. Presidents who  visited  Long Branch

The Presidential Seal can be traced back to the coat-of-arms first created by Charles Thomson in 1782 for the Great Seal of the newly independent United States of America.
Thompson’s design has stood the test of time, and though the eagle has been considerably bulked up in the intervening years, it closely resembles the modern Great Seal. When Thomson submitted the seal to Congress, he included what is still the only official explanation of its symbolism.
