Programs & Events

Our robust and eclectic roster of programs and events brings people of all ages and walks of life into the History Center to experience a local, national and world view of why history matters.

There's something for everyone; from our annual Trivia Night and genealogy series to expert panel discussions, stories shared by local historians, family programs, music, walking tours and more!

Programs & Events

Thank you to everyone who participated in our sold out series of "History on the Move!" docent-led walking tours.

Over the winter months we'll be busy preparing new outdoor tours for the Spring, including two new bicycle tours, as well as a full roster of virtual programs to take us through the winter months. We are so grateful for our Zoom audience and look forward to the time when a vaccine can bring us all back together again for regular on-site programming. Until then, please take care and stay tuned!
