RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A new exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History takes a look at the changes in the duties of governors and their spouses.

The exhibit titled Leading the state: North Carolina's Governors opened Friday and continues through April 28.

The exhibit includes a tuxedo that stands out among the inaugural gowns on one side. It was worn by Bob Eaves, the husband of outgoing Gov. Beverly Perdue's husband, at her inaugural ball almost four years ago.

On the other side, among the men's attire, is the black suit that Perdue wore for her official portrait.

The Museum of History has put on an exhibition to coincide with the inauguration of each governor since 1957 with the exception of one year when the museum was moving.
