February 10: Buckman Tavern and a Tour of the Lexington Historical Society’s Collection

Our tour will be led by Erica Dumont, Lexington Historical Society Executive Director, and Stacey Fraser, Collections Manager.  Stacey will discuss a some of the fascinating objects in the Society’s collection, such as the William Diamond drum, which called the militia into formation on Lexington Green on April 19, 1775.

Stacey and Erica will also take our group through the museum’s #Alarmed exhibit and explain the process behind the exhibit design, its research, and what the Society hopes it will convey to visitors.
