Reviews from past recipients:

“When I received my monthly DRHS letter subscription as a holiday gift last December, I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but once I opened my first letter I was completely hooked!  They are very well designed, and provide colorful historical snippets unique to Duxbury, which makes you pause and realize how truly special our town is!  I look forward to receiving them now every month and have already added it to my Christmas list for this year.  Well done…I strongly recommend!” -Morgan Mohrman, Duxbury

“What a wonderful gift I gave to myself when I subscribed to the DRHS Letter Subscription Service this year. Sealed with carefully designed wax seals, each is delightful and enlightening in its own way. Included with a copy of each letter is a transcription, background information, and a copy of a photo or other item to draw us into the period of history in which the letter was written. I am always surprised and excited when the mail delivers one of these letters from the past. I feel that I am there for a bit of time, out at sea, studying at school, at church, caring for my family at home, at a battleground in the South, in Boston and environs, visiting friends and relatives, etc.  One does not have to be a Duxbury resident to enjoy these letters.  While they may be local, they also have general appeal for anyone who is interested in history. Thank you, DRHS, for this creative informative charming offering.” – Linda Pisani, Duxbury
