          Museum Summer Hours

Sundays, 1:00-4:00, July 7 to August 25
(Both the museum and the historic Boyden one-room schoolhouse will be open during Festival of the Hills)

Summer Exhibition

 Come see our new exhibition, “Love's Sweet Afterglow: History of Death and Mourning." It takes visitors through the changing experiences of public and private loss, commemoration, and grief over the past 250 years. The items from the Museum collection tell stories about Conway cemeteries, highlight some vital statistics, show how an 18th Century farmer or 19th Century intellectual put their affairs in order, and explore how people remembered their loved ones. The displays will honor the memory of several people whose stories have not been told until today.

          The Society is also planning a guided cemetery tour. The date and time will be posted here soon.
