The Nobel and Cooley Center for Historic Preservation Museum (NCCHP) at 42 Water Street in Granville is pleased to announce that the museum will re-open in September for tours on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, from 12 to 3 p.m. In addition, two Living History programs have been scheduled:
Sept. 8 at 6:30 p.m. Sheryl Faye will present her “Eleanor Roosevelt—The First Lady of the World” program. Learn about Eleanor’s life from difficult childhood to First Lady, distinguished columnist, UN delegate and beyond. In her historical one-woman shows, Faye uses multi-media to immerse her audience in the life and times of her subjects—an incredible theater performance.
Sept 29 at 6:30 p.m. “The Ne’er Do Well’s,” led by historian Dennis Picard, will tell stories and perform tunes that were commonly heard around New England town greens from 1650-1885. Camp music is a style where the musician allows the tunes and lyrics to come through by interpreting that music as it would have been done by the common man of the period, without the frills of over instrumentation. Prepare to tap your toes!
NCCHP Living History programs are free for members; $5 donations from other guests are requested to help defray costs. Light refreshments will be provided after the program. Visit ncchp.org for updates.
