New Exhibit Coming to Bostonian Society

The Bostonian Society is about to launch an online exhibition called “From Baby Caps to Mourning Rings: The Material Culture of Boston’s 18th-Century Girls and Women.”

On Tuesday, 6 October, at 6:30 P.M., the society invites people to visit its Old State House Museum and hear Collections Department graduate intern Hope Cole discuss “the exhibition, the research processes that contributed to its creation, and several of the artifacts featured on the website.”

Some of the actual objects pictured in the virtual display will be available for viewing.

(This program is made possible by the New England Women’s Club Fund at The Boston Foundation.)
