PLEASE NOTE THIS LECTURE WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY EVENING
7:30 pm (Berwick Academy)
Emerson "Tad" Baker will discuss his recent book which sets the Salem Witch Trials in the broader context of American history from the seventeenth century to the present, and examines their enduring legacy.
The town’s bicentennial has inspired history exhibits now on view at three locations, the Counting House Museum, South Berwick Public Library and Town Hall. At the museum this summer, children can go on a scavenger hunt and try on clothes in front of a mirror. The museum is staffed by historical society volunteers from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on weekends and other times by appointment. Admission is by donation. More details here.
Our volunteers work hard to connect you to local history. Please help us, and support our museum and programs, by joining the Old Berwick Historical Society. Only takes a minute. Please click here.
