2016 Brought us to our 50th year and we had various opportunites to celebrate.
We appreciate the hard work of everyone who made these events possible and we thank those who came before us for making our Historical society what it is today.
-We started our season off with “Swing into Spring”, a live jazz concert in a our town Hall which was transformed into an elegant jazz club. Delicious hors d’oeuvres completed the night.
-Encampment and Reanactment showing life during the Revolutionary War. Captain Morrill’s Company, The William Diamond Fife and Drum Corps of Lexington Mass and the Hinsdale Garrison put on wonderful presentations.
-A concert by the 12th NH Regiment Serenade Band presented a historically informed performance of music from the American Civil War.
-Scavenger Hunt. A competition to find select surprise picks of historical interest.
The 12th NH Regiment Serenade Band:
The band recreates the sights and sounds of mid-19th century America, performing music of the Civil War played on period instruments. The musicians appear in typical Union Army uniform and period dress of the day.
