Bradford House Symposium Wrap-Up

Duxbury Clipper, March 29, 2017.


On March 25, 2017 attendees at the inaugural Bradford House Symposium gathered to “Reclaim a House’s History” and hear scholars and experts from across the region, as they delved into interesting and innovative aspects of the house’s history. Thank you to all who participated! The day was a culmination of years of research and effort to “Re-imagine Bradford.” To date, the DRHS has raised 97% of its capital campaign goal and repairs to the house will be completed by this fall. This summer, the house will open to the public with new exhibitions focused on the four Bradford daughters and their “lives well-lived.” The house will be open during the regular season for free to Duxbury residents, in thanks for their support of this project. We hope to see you there!
