“into your hands…”

April 06, 2010 — September 19, 2010


The Concord Museum celebrated the 375th anniversary of the founding of the town of Concord with a special exhibition, “into your hands…” featuring objects that have been passed down in Concord’s families and then entrusted to the Concord Museum. The exhibition included portraits, jewelry, needlework, ceramics, clothing, furniture, clocks and silver, all donated to the Concord Museum by family members with the intent to preserve Concord’s history for generations to come.  The title “into your hands…” was taken from a 1942 letter written by Lucy Merriam Brigham describing her gift of family possessions to the Museum.
