Burr and Burton: From Burr Seminary to Burr and Burton Academy

Date

Nov 03 2022

Time

5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In collaboration with the Manchester Historical Society:

Join us for a look back at the history of this storied Manchester institution, from the early days of the lone limestone building in the middle of a pasture to its current position as a world-class educational academy. The talk will include an introduction to some of the people who devoted themselves to generations of students: where they came from, why they stayed, and the legacy they left our community.

Space is limited for the in-person talk and pre-registration is required.
