The Dorchester County Historical Society is encouraging Dorchester resident to visit its home campus, the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester, 1003 Greenway Drive, Cambridge, with no admission charge during September.
The circa 1760 Meredith House will be open for guided tours at 11 a.m. daily, where visitors can enjoy the Dorchester portraits, artifacts and stories that accompany them. “World War I: Honoring Our Past” is an exhibit recently installed and on display for a limited time. The stories of Dorchester service men and women, their experiences and their sacrifices, will be shared.
The gardens and waterfront on campus offer an opportunity to view a working herb garden and atypical marsh scene from an earlier time. The Goldsborough Stable, circa 1790, highlights the skills that the farmers needed to master from the earliest settlers.
New exhibits and signage were installed in the Neild Museum, including one honoring religion’s place in Dorchester history. Other changes are happening in the Robbins Heritage Center and include a timeline that describes the settlement of the area utilizing Dorchester artifacts and heirlooms.
