Frank Perdue Museum

It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken. For many years, that man was Frank Perdue, the face (and CEO) of Perdue Farms. Salisbury University (which Perdue attended in the 1930s) pays tribute to the late poultry magnate and his legacy at the Franklin P. Perdue Museum of Business and Entrepreneurship. Highlights include a sampling of Franks national commercials and poultry packaging, along with the head of the company's retired chicken mascot outfit.
