Fun Fact Friday!

Did you know that Williams Jennings Bryan made his first political speech in Exeter.  Mr. Bryan was attending the university at the time.  A speaker was to come to Exeter for a Democratic rally, but canceled his appearance and Mr. Bryan was asked to take his place.  The rally was held in the room about the Taylor store.  Mr. Bryan made two more speeches in Exeter but the dates are not recorded.
