We’re using our Snow Date!
Due to Blizzard Charlotte, the MHS has rescheduled the first Lee Lecture to Sunday, February 17, 2013.
"Cabins, Camps, and Cottages: An Exploration of the Golden Era of Summer on the Shore"- "Salt Water, Flying Horses and the Savin Rock Devil: Beachgoers, Tycoons, and Thrill-Seekers on the Connecticut Coast".
Come to learn about the many seasonal migrants to the shoreline from nearby cities and from New York and Boston. Presenter Diana Ross McCain, Head of the Research Center at the Connecticut Historical Society and author of The Connecticut Coast: A Town-by-Town Illustrated History (Globe Pequot Press, 2009), will tell how folks traveled here and why they came.
The one-hour programs, co-sponsored by the Madison Beach and Recreation Department, are at 4:00 p.m. at Memorial Town Hall (8 Meetinghouse Lane) and are appropriate for all adults and children aged 10 and older ($5 adults; $4, MHS members; $2, students and children). The selected Sundays are February 10, March 10, and April 28. In the event of inclement weather, each program will be delayed until the immediately following Sunday.
