Spotlight Talk: Declaration of Independence
November 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 17, 2021
Why did the founding fathers think that July 2nd would be the day we celebrated American Independence? This Talk takes a look at our copy of the Declaration of Independence, the Russell Broadside. We will explore the history of the broadside while putting it into context of Beverly history. Free and open to all; join us here.
Get the inside story on objects, events, and our historic houses with Spotlight Tours and Historic House Spotlights. These tours are brief, casual, intimate conversations that take place throughout the month. Topics change regularly but may include visitor favorites or an object you have not explored yet!
