Since 1968, the Plainville Historical Society has worked to keep alive the story of our town. On Saturday, Sept. 15, the group celebrates its 50th anniversary with an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Plainville Historic Center, 29 Pierce St. All members of the public are invited. Refreshments, music, speakers, a door prize, and an opportunity to visit the museum will make this an afternoon not to be missed.
Museum highlights include the current exhibit on the society’s first 50 years. All other museum rooms will also be open. Permanent exhibits include a Victorian parlor, schoolroom, historical kitchen, African-American history display, a barn area and rooms devoted to both the Farmington Canal and to the Tunxis Native Americans.
RSVP, by Wednesday, Sept. 12, is appreciated, but not required. Call 860-747-6577 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
