Event Description

Consider yourself warmly invited to The Hanover Historical Society’s Night of Classics! Join us in the always cozy nostalgic Stetson House Barn for a performance by the Hingham Woodwind Quintet and a gallery-talk by our curator, Rachel Lovett on the story of preservation of the historic country clothing. The concert and presentation will be sure to inspire the same refined, provincial wistfulness of summer concerts in the Berkshires. Lastly, we will round off our night together with a candle-lit tour of the Stetson House’s charming permanent collection, with special attention paid to its lovely textiles. If you would care to join us in this brief escape from the commotion of modern life, we begin at 7pm on September 22nd and look forward to seeing you here!

For Reservations, call or email our curator at 781-267-3050 or
$12 non members $ 5 members
