This Week @ MHS

Join us on Thursday, 31 March @ 12:15 at the Old South Meeting House for the final installment in the A Nation Born: The Battles of Lexington and Concord series.  In this session filmmaker Bestor Cram shares clips from his award-winning documentary Unfinished Symphony, as well as his experiences as part of the events on Memorial Day 1971 when nearly 500 Vietnam Veterans and townspeople were arrested for camping on Lexington Green, the very spot where the American Revolution began .

And on Saturday, 2 April, our weekly building tour begins in the front lobby at 10:00AM.  This 90 minute tour offers an opportunity to learn about the history and collections of the MHS.
