PRESTON — The Preston Historical Society has two events taking place in August. Both events are free and open to the public.
An Ice Cream Social and ribbon cuttings, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Society’s Museum located at 167 Main Street in Preston.
Members of the Society have been hard at work on the second floor of the Museum’s home in the Noble House, using donated items to create three bedrooms that replicate how life at home in Preston may have looked during the last century.
An adult’s bedroom, a girl’s bedroom, and a boy’s bedroom help bring history to life with period beds, furniture and accessories.
The outbuilding on the Museum grounds has become its Agriculture Building, and now houses agricultural implements and memorabilia, which help tell the story of farming before the advent of the technology that has since changed the face of farming.
Ribbon cuttings will begin at 10 a.m., and free ice cream will be served to all guests. A bake sale table will offer home baked goods for guests to take home with them.
Roger Layton will be the guest speaker at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19, at the membership meeting of the Society Museum. He will share memories of Linchester Pond, and a business meeting will follow. Refreshments will be served, and as always, the public is invited to attend membership meetings.
