Please join the Amherst Historical Society for our Founders Day Celebration on Sunday, February 10 at 2:00 p.m. at the Jones Library Woodbury Room to commemorate the February 13, 1759 founding of Amherst. Events include our Annual Meeting, the Conch Shell Award given this year to Julie Dobrow, and this year’s Mabel Loomis Todd Lecture “Thinking Colonial: Early Colonial Life in the Pioneer Valley” presented by Rob Cox. A reception with the drawing for the Upcycled-Ski Adirondack Chair will follow next-door at the museum’s Simeon Strong House. This event is free and open to the public.
