The first event as we renew our Second Sunday Speaker Series will be Sunday, August 8. The presentation will be on the history of the Whiting and Davis Company and a look at Charles A Whiting, his family, his gardens and beautiful home, which once stood majestically on West Central Street.
Many people from Franklin once worked for Whiting and Davis, or had family members who worked for them. The company is now under new ownership and we will hear from the current owner. The presentation on the Whiting Family & home will be from a private collection of glass plate negatives, from Franklin photographer Nathan Wales circa 1912.
Doors will open at 1:00 and the presentation will start at 1:15.
In September, we will have a special guest, Franklin native Paul Faenza, retired NYPD, who will share his 9-11 experience and his two weeks at Ground Zero. Scheduled for Sunday, September 12.
The Davis Thayer School Retrospective exhibit will be on display through the end of the summer.
While visiting the museum please stop in to our newly revamped gift shop for many unique Franklin items.
We are now back to our pre-COVID hours, Thursday evenings 5PM-7PM, Saturday mornings 10am-1pm and Sunday afternoons 1pm-4pm. Admission is always free. We are wheelchair accessible. Come in and discover your history.
