Pandemic Plans
Wondering about the Pig Roast for 2021?
The Trustees have made the difficult decision to suspend our annual Pig Roast Event until further notice, which means we will not be holding the Pig Roast in 2021. In the meantime, we are thinking about alternative ways to hold a community event/fundraiser when we can safely be back together. Let us know if you have any creative ideas and email us at info@hamptonhistoricalsociety.org!
Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Tuck Museum remains closed.
We hope to reopen on April 1, 2021.

We believe life will return to a more normal condition next year and the Board has approved a major project for the HHS in 2021 - we will be restoring the 1852 Schoolhouse at a budgeted cost of $30,000. The work, which has been on the radar for years, will involve both the interior and exterior, and we are excited that we will now address it. This is one of the last District schoolhouses in the area.

We need your financial help in accomplishing this and an anonymous donor has offered to match all member donations received by March 31, 2021 on a 1 for 1 basis. This should allow us to do the work without severely draining our financial position.

On other fronts, an exhibit on the Joseph Dow trunk and its contents will be ready for a summer unveiling, and our newest acquisition- "Hampton Mill" painting by Charles Henry Turner - has been restored and will be on display. The exhibit- "Remember the Ladies - Suffrage and the 19th Amendment," created for 2020, will be held over.

We are able and enthusiastic about communicating with the public electronically - via our Facebook page (see link at right) and emails (to info@hamptonhistoricalsociety.org). So we encourage members and others to ask any questions about genealogy, Hampton history, etc. Please watch this space and Facebook for additional announcements.
