“Hearth and Harvest” in Lexington, 28 Nov

The Lexington Historical Society will host its annual Hearth and Harvest event at Buckman Tavern this Friday, 28 November, from 4:00 to 8:00 P.M. There will be colonial music and song by the Liberty Singers and Scottish fiddle music by Emerald Rae, craft displays, puzzles, and scavenger hunts and games for children.

The announcement I received also said:

See the Society’s Colonial portrait collection come alive as interpreters in period-appropriate dress speak to the lives of the people in the pictures.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children, and include a shot at light refreshments on the site. Call 781-862-1703 to reserve tickets, or buy them at the tavern, 1 Bedford Street in Lexington, starting at 10:00 on the morning of the event. The Lexington folks seem really eager to welcome people to this event—I’ve now received the news five different ways!

Thank you for mentioning this. We took our 7-year-old daughter and had an enjoyable time. There were quite a few visitors, too, so I'd say the LHS folks did a good job of getting the word out.
