Manchester’s Urban Ponds: Past, Present, and Future

DATE TO BE RESCHEDULED
Millyard Museum

artist exhibit graphicNote: This year's Annual Meeting will be combined with the Manchester's Urban Ponds Exhibit Opening.  We will be announcing a new date for this event in the coming weeks. 

This year’s Annual Meeting will begin with the business meeting of the Manchester Historic Association and will be followed by the opening of a new exhibit about both the history and future of Manchester's ponds.

Although ponds may not be the first thing one thinks about in Manchester, the Queen City has several ponds that have played an important role in the area’s history.  More recently, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program, established in 2000, has led cleanup efforts to help return the city’s ponds to their historic uses. This exhibit looks at the history of several of Manchester’s urban ponds, including Crystal Lake, Dorrs Pond, Maxwell Pond, Nutts Pond, Pine Island Pond, and Stevens Pond and celebrates the accomplishments of the Urban Ponds Restoration Program over the last 20 years.

"Manchester's Urban Ponds: Past, Present, and Future" will be on display in the Millyard Museum's State Theater Gallery through August 1.

Note: It was originally announced that this event would be held on May 12, 2020.  We are working to reschedule and modify the Preservation Awards this year and will be announcing new plans in the coming weeks. 

The Historic Preservation Awards program recognizes and supports the efforts of individuals, businesses and organizations who have made significant contributions to the preservation of buildings, neighborhoods, traditions and other historic resources in the Queen City.

Over 27 years, more than 230 recipients have been recognized for a wide variety of preservation efforts in 40 different categories. The annual event has become the MHA’s single largest fundraiser to support its non-profit mission of collecting, preserving and sharing the history of Manchester.
