Celebrate Winchester's musical and technological heritage

Supported by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities, the Friends of Public Art will kick off the Winchester Musical Heritage Project with events exploring Winchester’s unique place in music history and manufacturing innovation. A lecture titled “Whatever Happened to Yankee Ingenuity?” will be held on Tuesday, August 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Historical Society of Cheshire County in Keene. At the town-wide Jubilee all day on Saturday, August 20, participants can explore the town and its music and manufacturing history, including performances using both historic and modern instruments, walking tours, and workshops. The Jubilee centers on a panel discussion on how Winchester can learn from past innovations as it works to renew its economic community.
