The FHS’s table at the Antique Show generates a large percentage of our event profits for, unlike gate receipts, they are not “shared” with a promoter. The table is stocked solely with your donations and all proceeds go directly into FHS coffers. That is why it is so important to support this table with donations of antiques and collectables and why we are so grateful for the wonderful support this table has received in the past. At the end of the day your generosity has funded programming and the maintenance of our facility.
All of your donations are tax deductible and although we don’t assign a value to them when you drop them off, you can assign a value yourself for tax purposes. If you need something picked up we would be happy to do so. So again, if you have an item that you feel would be appropriate for our table, give a call to the FHS office at 508-548-4857. If you are not sure, give us a call anyway!

THIS SUMMER IN THE CULTURAL CENTER: Art and History Series
We invited different visual artists to the Museum, with free reign over our vaults and storage areas to create an exhibit that interprets the Museum’s collection and/or the local history of the town. Each artist brings their own work, aesthetic and interest to our collections, inevitably leading to dynamic discoveries by presenting our objects in new, surprising contexts
We are also hosting a tea with each artist. Please join Museum staff, members, friends and the artist for an afternoon of tea and tasty goodies as we talk art, history, and the mixing/matching of the two. FREE ADMISSION.
Salley Mavor: Expressions in Stitches—Then and Now
Mavor is well known for her whimsical, delightful and masterly fiber creations—her most popular being “Pocket Full of Posies” which pairs her fiber illustrations with familiar nursery rhymes. For this exhibition, Mavor will be juxtaposing her own work with pieces from the Museum’s textile collections. http://weefolkstudio.com/
