Preservation Month Open House

NOTE: this event was rescheduled from May 15 to May 29.

Join Old South Meeting House staff and neighbors for light refreshments, a short lecture at 5:15 p.m. on the 1729 historic site’s fascinating historic preservation story, and an opportunity to explore the permanent exhibition, “Voices of Protest,” at your leisure.

Learn why there is an 18th-century horseshoe in the permanent exhibits, how the Meeting House is indebted to a fire engine from New Hampshire, how Louisa May Alcott and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow supported the Meeting House’s preservation in the late 1800s, why William Lloyd Garrison didn’t, and how this building’s preservation story continues as it approaches its 300th birthday!

This program is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute.
