2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibit Opening: Manchester's Urban Ponds

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.
