Announcing the 90th Anniversary Posters in Web Format

90th_exhibit_poster1_vsm.jpg HHS celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2015. As part of that occasion, an exhibit was created at the museum called Gathering on the Green: A History of the Hampton Historical Society and Tuck Museum from 1925 to the Present. It consisted of a series of posters for each decade, spread throughout the museum. Visitors would follow the route through the museum and read each poster.

At the time, we wanted people to come to the museum to see the new exhibit, and didn't want to present the full text of each poster on this website. However, now that some time has passed, we are now presenting those posters in web-friendly format for easy online viewing.

So, if you want to read a lot of interesting info about the history of Hampton and HHS, presented in a lively format (derived from the original, beautiful posters), go to the upgraded Gathering on the Green page.

(The physical posters are still on display at the museum, so come in and see them for real too!)
