A Treasury of Massachusetts House Museums and Loca...

Presented by Massachusetts Historical Society at Online/Virtual Space

Most of our 351 towns have a community-based historical organization. Many are volunteer-run. Collectively, they present and preserve the stuff and stories that make up our history Рusually with an emphasis on local art, industries, and material culture. William Hosley has criss-crossed Massachusetts visiting them in every corner of the state, from Adams to Andover, Northampton to Nantucket. We will hear from three of what he calls gems Рhouse museums and historicals with amazing stuff and stories, that fly a bit under the radar. They too are grappling with the usual challenges of audience engagement, preservation, and interpretation.

Please note, this is an online event held on the video conference platform, Zoom. Registrants will receive an email with links to join the program.
