American Innovator: Abraham Prescott and His Instruments
New England in the nineteenth century must have sounded beautiful with the music of instruments hand crafted by local artisans. Abraham Prescott was a noted American luthier from New Hampshire. He is particularly well known for his double bass, one of which survives in the collection of the Townsend Historical Society. His pieces are now prized possessions of museums and musical institutions across the country. Join us for an interesting investigation into the life and legacy of this important Yankee innovator. This event is sponsored by the Amanda Dwight Fund.

Leisurely New England: A Nostalgic Look Back at How We Had Fun

New England is vacation land. Now, more than ever before, we are on the move traveling to places near and far. As we explore our surroundings, we often take them for granted. Sure, they have a history but how well is it known? Few have looked back to examine the history of regional tourism and how it relates to the local narrative. Fortunately, we live in the birthplace of this industry. Townsend was on the crossroads of travelers heading in all directions and influenced by regional and national movements. From notable firsts, short-lived trends, long-established destinations and everything between, this program will dive deeper into the history of having fun. Some locations will be active and known to all ages. Others might look back on long-gone landmarks with a twinkle of nostalgia. You won't want to miss this unique opportunity to connect with memories, old and new. Presented by Historian Ryan D. Hayward of The Preservation Collaborative, Inc. and Taber Morrell. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Townsend Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the MA Cultural Council, a state agency. It is also sponsored by a generous grant from the Amanda Dwight Entertainment Fund of Townsend
