Autumn at the Historical Society

Fall is here and the leaves are changing color as they do every Fall.   With the coming of the fall season  the museum and gift shop will end our weekly Saturday openings.   Our last day was Saturday, October 12th.   We hope you have enjoyed visiting with us and found the exhibits interesting and uplifting.  Your comments are always welcome.  Thanks to our many volunteers who have been here to greet you and offer assistance with your questions and to listen to your comments. Please know we appreciate your ideas and recommendations for future exhibits and for items to carry in the gift shop.  Thank you for your support.

The gift shop will have a table at the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale on Saturday, October 26th from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM  at the Walpole Middle School.   Also the museum will be open for the annual November Holiday Shopping day. This will be on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, November 23rd – hours are 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Our new speaker series will begin on Friday November 8th at the Walpole Town Hall with Yankee humorist Fred Marple ( aka Ken Sheldon)  starting us off with a light and humorous evening.   We hope to see you then.  

We are happy to open the museum for private tours for schools, organizations or family visitations anytime by calling 756-3449.   Watch for announcements for beginning our regular work sessions during the winter months.  Many hands are needed to take down present exhibits and to plan and put up new displays for next year.
