Thanks to all for their support during 2017!
The Kent Historical Society Board of Trustees welcomes each and every gift in support of the organization’s annual operating costs.
Your support helps protect our past and ensures that future generations will have access to important information about our town.
Take a look at what we’ve accomplished during recent years, thanks to support from people like you:
- Created a climate-controlled storage area to protect the artwork of 20th century artist George Laurence Nelson
- Celebrated the founders of Kent with an exhibit that documented the people who started the town and explored life in the 1700s.
- Explored our town’s historic heritage with a 7-house tour focused on Colonial homes in and around Kent Hollow.
- Offered educational lectures in our 2017 Sunday Series that explored topics related to the beginning years of the town, including food, religion, land divisions and the first inhabitants of the town.
- Refurbished the Seven Hearths Museum exterior with new clapboard siding and painting.
In 2018, we are launching a year-long program called A Sense of Community: Kent at mid-20th Centurywhich will explore life in our town, including growing up or moving to Kent, farming and the Village, as described by your neighbors in exhibits, lectures and conversations. We hope you will attend and/or participate.
Thank you to everyone who has already donated or renewed their membership since our fiscal year began Oct. 1, 2017! Your support makes a difference and is deeply appreciated.
