NEW YORK (AP) - The Louis Armstrong House Museum in New York City has hired its first curator.
David L. Reese most recently has served as resident director of Gunston Hall, the former home of founding father George Mason in Mason Neck, Va.
From 1987 to 2002, Reese was curator of the New York City mayor's official residence, Gracie Mansion. He also was chief officer of the Gracie Mansion Conservancy.
The Louis Armstrong House became a National Historic Landmark in 1976. The museum opened to the public in 2003.
Louis and Lucille Armstrong bought the house in 1943. The jazz great lived there until his death in 1971.
The modest house is in Queens. Artifacts in the house include a portrait of Armstrong painted by singer Tony Bennett.
