The 2016 Tsongas Awards Dinner will celebrate Women in Preservation!

Looking across the landscape of historic preservation, cultural heritage, history, architecture and myriad efforts to preserve our past and enhance our collective quality of life, the number of women who have headed up these efforts and been the pioneers to preserve and retain our collective history for our future generations is remarkable. It is women who emerged, first as the historians, then the community activists, urban warriors, the professionals and now the innovators who are bringing preservation as a movement into the 21st century.

Nominations are currently being accepted for this year’s Tsongas Awards honoring Women in Preservation!

Salem Athenæum Celebrates 200 Years in 2010!

| December 15th, 2009 | No Comments »

The Salem Athenæum, a preeminent cultural institution, marks its 200th year in 2010. With its collection of historic and contemporary books and quality programming comprised of lectures, courses, and concerts, the Athenæum will celebrate its members and collections and their influence on Salem and the world.

The celebration will continue yearlong with programs featuring contemporary historians, writers, musicians, poets, theatrical presentations, and critics. For those wishing to delve more deeply into the 19th century, the Athenæum will offer one multi-week course: William Bentley’s Salem (April 12 to May 10), featuring the historic writings and wisdom of Salem’s own Reverend Bentley.

On March 6, 2010, (exactly 200 years from the date of its incorporation) the Athenæum celebrates its anniversary in style with a Federalist period “assembly” (the name given at that time to a splendid social event featuring music, dance, food and drink). This event, The Salem Athenaeum Bicentennial Assembly: Celebrating 1810, will be held at Hamilton Hall, 9 Chestnut Street, Salem from 7 to 11 p.m. More events will take place throughout the year and PM will keep you updated.
