New Program for the Public a Hit

Take some history buffs, students, teachers, museum professionals, an enthusiastic and well-known scholar, and some wonderful materials from our collections and what do you get? A great inaugural Hands-on History Workshop! Last Saturday we presented “Worcester and the American Revolution,” led by Ray Raphael, to a diverse group of interested, informed, and eager participants.

We thought it was a resounding success, but if you don’t believe us check out the article in the Telegram & Gazette, which features quotes from many of the participants and sums up the day.

We’re already thinking about our next one, so please contact us if you’re interested or if there are any particular topics you’d like to see in the future. We hope to see you there!
