Program for Adults
The Heritage Society offers a wide variety of entertaining, educational programming for adults. Our programs appeal to different interests, and we offer everything from workshops and lectures to bus tours and educational trips.
Jerry & Marvy Finger Lecture Series
The Heritage Society offers a variety of lectures each year to its members and the general public. In the past season we have hosted local historian Louis Aulbach, preservationist Anna Mod,journalist Bryant Boutwell, library director Margaret Culbertson, state historic site manager Bryan McAuley, Fire Museum Director Tristan Smith, local historians Ann Malone and Dan Becker, local historian Marks Hinton, archaeologist Robert Marcom and wildlife photographer Kathy Adams Clark.
The lectures take place on the third Thursday of each month at noon in The Heritage Society Tea Room and cost $5 for non-members. You are welcome to purchase a box lunch at the lecture for just $11.50, or bring your own. Free parking is available in the parking lot behind the Kellum-Noble House. These lectures are made possible through the generosity of Marvy Finger.
Building Arts Lecture Series
The Building Arts Lecture Series serves as a companion educational program to The Heritage Society’s monthly Jerry & Marvy Finger Lecture Series, andfocuses on architecture and the building arts. Quarterly lectures are given by craftsmen, architects, engineers, and members of the building trade. These lectures will discus the design, art, craft, and construction of buildings, both historic and modern day. For more information please contact Emily Ardoin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
