Lady Luck's Wand

A piece of Styrofoam molding used to transform the Virginia State Capitol into the White House, “Lady Luck’s” magic wand, and a World War II–era Norden bombsite have all found a permanent home at the VHS during the past year. Take a look at these and some other new society residents—many of which have never been on public display—with your behind the scenes pass.
