To celebrate the 250th birthday of Dolley Madison, the Board of the Greensboro History Museum, Inc. is offering the opportunity to send a singing telegram to your Valentine.

These unique greetings will be delivered by the one and only “Dolley” with violin accompaniment. 

Julie Copeland, President of the Greensboro History Museum, Inc. Board said, “We’re filled with excitement about the year-long celebration of Dolley’s birthday at the Museum.” 
Dolley Madison is one of the area’s most prominent and celebrated historical women because she was a Guilford County native and the only first lady to be born in North Carolina. According to, Carol Hart, Director of the Museum, the Dolley Madison Collection is one of the most significant collections of her belongings known to exist in the United States.
It is truly a national treasure right here in the City of Greensboro.

The singing telegrams can be purchased for delivery to a residence or a workplace (depending on location specific regulations.) For more information, on how you can honor that special someone in your life this Valentine’s Day, while also celebrating the life of this iconic local heroine, please call the Museum Gift Shop, at (336) 373-2949 or email .
