State Project: The 2015-2016 State Project will be to raise funds to aid in the creation of the Governor James Pollock Gallery in the James Cameron Museum in Milton Pennsylvania.

Although we all carry American currency in our pockets and purses, few have any knowledge of the origin of the words found on each piece - "In God We Trust." James Pollock, a Milton native and 13th Governor of PA also served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1844-1849. While serving in the 13th U.S. Congress in 1847-1849, he roomed with Abraham Lincoln at Mrs. Spriggs Boarding House in Washington DC, and they became friends. President Lincoln appointed him as Director of the U.S. Mint in 1861, and tasked him with creating a motto for our currency. Pollock is credited with creating the phrase “In God We Trust,” which he added to the newly minted 2-cent coin in 1864. “In God We Trust” was adopted as our national motto in 1956, and Pollock’s phrase is still carried by each of us today. The gallery is intended to share the story of this important local figure and will be housed in the James Cameron Museum on Route 405 outside of Milton. The beautiful federal style Cameron House is home to the Milton Historical Society. Jessica is “Proud as a Peacock” to have chosen this project!

Your donations and support will ensure that artifacts belonging to Governor Cameron will have a permanent home and that future generations will have a place to learn more about the creator of our national motto.
