Special Lexington Historical Society Event

Conservation Fundraiser
Thursday, March 31
6:00pm-8:00pm at Munroe Tavern (1332 Massachusetts Avenue)

This wine and cheese event will offer a look at some special objects with interesting stories in the Society’s collections—many of which are crying out for conservation.  Those interested in contributing to our conservation efforts will have the opportunity to purchase “shares” in different conservation projects and have the satisfaction of preserving these objects for posterity.

There will be a special lecture by Dr. Tricia Wilson Nguyen, owner of Thistle Threads and a prominent needlework expert, who will speak about the reproduction efforts surrounding the 17th century Plimoth Jacket.

Free and open to the public!

Reserve your place by calling 781-862-1703.


Annual Meeting
Tuesday, April 5
7:00pm at the Lexington Depot

Join us for a social hour and recognition of some of our dedicated volunteers.  Plans for the Society’s new Archives Center at Munroe Tavern will be unveiled.

Dick Kollen, Society historian, will speak about his brand-new biography of the Reverend Jonas Clarke, The Patriot Parson of Lexington, Massachusetts.  The book will be available for purchase and signing.

Free and open to the public!
