The Story of Anna & the Pendant
Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 7:30 p.m.
Conway Historical Society Museum, 50 Main Street, Conway
The Society will screen a short video by Brad Martin, metal detector enthusiast, who recently found a silver pendant in Vermont that belonged to Anna Adams Leonard (1794-1872) of Conway. How did the pendant worn by a young Conway woman, who later settled in the Michigan Territory, end up near the top of a Vermont mountain? Who was Anna Adams Leonard? Society members will share their research and answer questions about metal detecting and how to track a life through historical records.
