On February 28th at 6:00 p.m., come to the Wakefield Estate for the second in its 2018 StoneSoup and Speaker series of engaging talks and delicious homemade soups. This year’s theme, “Digging Deeper: Exploring the Wakefield Estate’s Collections,” allows for a deeper look at four different aspects of the estate’s collections. This month, Sara Belkin, former Director of our Summer Archaeological Institute for teens, will discuss her intriguing findings and research during the past five years of digs, which focused on the Irish tenant farm family that occupied the farmhouse in the late 19th century, an interest that led to and culminated in her successful defense of her doctoral dissertation in 2017.
This program will be held in the Isaac Davenport mansion located at 1465 Brush Hill Road in Milton. RSVP by calling 617-333-0924 x22. Suggested donation $5.
