Opening to the public on Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Imagine the early days of Raynham Hall Museum, when the building had just been saved from neglect and possible demolition by a group of determined and activist preservationists. That is the subject of our new exhibition, which explores the early stages of the Museum’s development and the group of (mostly) ladies who made it happen.  Visitors will see rarely exhibited early photographs of the building and of these remarkable women. The exhibition kicks off with a cocktail party on Sunday, June 1 and opens to the general public on Tuesday, June 3.

Cost is $100 for members and $125 for non-members. RSVP by calling the museum.
