HISTORIC NORTHAMPTON FEBRUARY 21-23 PROGRAMS AT 33 HAWLEY ST.

In collaboration with other local non-profits, Historic Northampton has arranged three terrific events for this week (Thursday - Saturday).

Here’s a summary of what we’ve got lined up: 

  • A repeat performance of John Sinton's terrific talk about how the Mill River shaped Northampton's history.  
  • A presentation by Allison Bell and Maida Goodwin that tells the extraordinary story of two amazing women naturalists, a week-long hike in the White Mountains in 1902, alpine ecology, conservation success, secret codes, Northampton and modern archival research. (* Full disclosure: After reading Bell & Goodwin's new book Glorious Mountain Days, I've already begun planning to repeat the 1902 hike next year.)
  • A film screening of An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Rosamond Purcell, which will include the opportunity to meet Rosamond Purcell and the film’s producer & Northampton native Alan Edelstein. (*Second disclosure: Since seeing this film, I’ve never looked the same way at discarded objects left outdoors or museum artifacts. It's expanding and inspiring.)


It's a rich, full and special few days of programs.
I hope you’ll be able to join us for all of them.

Laurie Sanders, Co-Director
