February 2017 Update

Programs and Events

The Hinsdale Historical Society had a busy fall, hosting a very successful program Crafting Family Narratives with Oral History Methods and New Technologies. Professional oral historian Marie Scatena led the program. In December, the Hinsdale History Museum held its annual Holiday Open House, featuring its Victorian Christmas decorations, Hinsdale Chorale carols, and crafts and activities for children. Visitors also enjoyed roasted chestnuts and other treats.  

The Society’s first ever Trivia Night fundraiser and friend-raiser was held on Friday, January 20 at Immanuel Hall. It was a sold-out affair with eight tables of people participating.
