The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

Looking for something to do on your lunch break today? Why not visit 1154 Boylston at noon and enjoy a stimulating brown-bag lunch program.  Lindsay Moore, Boston University, will present her research "Women, Power, and Litigation in the English Atlantic World, 1630-1700," which explores how female litigants in England and early colonial America used the law courts to protect their rights to property.

Cannot make it all the way to the Back Bay on your lunch hour?  Plan on attending our building tour this coming Saturday. The guided tour, "The History and Collections of the MHS," departs the front lobby promptly at 10:00 AM.
