amcg1130Bowlers, Derbies, Fedoras, Oh My! Whatever style you prefer, hats have always played an important part in our lives. They cover our heads when it rains or snows, they signify a social group or profession we belong to, and most importantly, they complete an outfit.

In the Exhibit “Hats Off to Manchester”, the Manchester Historic Association digs deep into its collection to bring you a special collection of hats made, worn or bought in Manchester. Take a stroll down memory lane as we bring stories, photographs and of course hats from some of Elm Street’s most beloved stores.  Come see hat boxes and display photos from Pariseau’s, J.W. Hills, and M.A. Barton’s just to name a few.

Put on your favorite chapeau and join us on Tuesday April 2 for the opening of “Hats Off to Manchester”!

Please RSVP by calling (603) 622-7531 or by e-mail at hThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you are unable to join us on April 2, "Hats Off to Manchester" will be on display in the Millyard Museum's State Theater Gallery through August 1.

spanning time coverSpanning Time introduces the first complete photographic collection of New Hampshire covered bridges (1983–2017). The book also includes a history of The Old Man of the Mountain and some of the last photographs from the year before he fell in 2003. The covered bridge is an intrinsic part of our New England heritage. This unique “silver-print” photographic collection by Irene E. DuPont allows each individual structure to be admired in its natural setting.

Irene E. DuPont received her B.A. from Notre Dame College, attended the Art Institute of Boston, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Hallmark Institute of Photography, and summer sessions at the Maine Photographic Workshop. She was a faculty member of the Nashua School District for thirty-five years and taught in both the public and private sectors. In 1993 she was a recipient for a C-SPAN National Teacher of the Year Award for “Innovative Use of Cable in the Classroom.” Irene is a juried member of both the Craftworkers Guild of Bedford, New Hampshire, and New Hampshire Made.

A talented and prolific artist, she has had numerous one-woman shows in New England. The most outstanding was at the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., sponsored by Time Warner Communications.

New Hampshire history is uniquely on display along the highways of the Granite State. The New Hampshire roadside historical markers commemorate significant events and individuals from the first settlers arriving in 1623 to notable individuals who helped define what New Hampshire is today. New Hampshire also played a major role in the birth of our nation. From Revolutionary battlefields to individuals of political influence, the Granite State has made an indelible mark on history. This book explores the 255 New Hampshire historical markers that dot the state highways and roads. Each marker is described with its location (to include GPS coordinates), date installed, marker inscription, and expanded historical references of this event/individual. Information may also be provided about other points of interest in the vicinity of the historical marker.
