The Walpole Historical Society is hosting a presentation by local archaeologist, Gail Golec, entitled Graffiti: 200 years of History at the Dodge Tavern, on June 7, 2019 at 7:00 PM at the Walpole Town Hall.
The Old Dodge Tavern had been the cornerstone of a small enclave in the northeast corner of town known as The Valley for over 200 years. Golec’s presentation will give a comprehensive history of The Valley and serve as the backdrop for the WHS summer exhibit about The Valley, opening that weekend, entitled Life in “The Valley”: The history of a little known Walpole community, told through the MacNutt and Thompson families, ca. 1919.
The presentation will be 80 minutes long with an intermission and consist of a narrated slideshow created by Golec for her local-history podcast, “The Secret Life of Death”.
The event is free of charge and open to all. There will be refreshments available.
